Toronto FC’s Michael Bradley and Seattle’s Clint Dempsey headline eight U.S. national team players on the MLS All-Star team that will face English Premier League club Tottenham on July 29.
Dempsey scored in the 47th minute and Brad Guzan made a pair of point-blank saves in the second half for the defending champions, who improved to 2-0 in the opening round and clinched a spot in a July 18 quarterfinal in Baltimore.

Michael Bradley will be the U.S. captain for the CONCACAF Gold Cup rather than Clint Dempsey, who was suspended by MLS for a confrontation with a referee.
