NEW YORK (AP) – 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.
Bradley and Dempsey will be joined by U.S. teammates Matt Besler (Sporting Kansas City), Omar Gonzalez (Los Angeles), DaMarcus Beasley (Houston), Graham Zusi (Kansas City), Benny Feilhaber (Kansas City) and Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake).
Also, MLS commissioner Don Garber added English stars Steven Gerrard and Frank Lampard to the league’s team.
Brazilian star Kaka (Orlando City) and Spanish standout David Villa (New York City FC) were also among the 10 players announced Monday as winners of fan voting on the league’s website and on social media. Seattle’s Obafemi Martins got the 11th spot as winner of the “More Than A Vote” tournament as fans scored more than a million goals using the forward in the FIFA 15 video game.
