MLS Names Squad to Face Manchester United

Major League Soccer has named it’s squad to play in Houston on July 28th.

2010 MLS All-Star Game Roster
Goalkeepers (2): Donovan Ricketts (LA Galaxy), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake)

Defenders (7): Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy), Chad Marshall (Columbus Crew), Jamison Olave (Real Salt Lake), Jonathan Bornstein (Chivas USA), Heath Pearce (FC Dallas), Wilman Conde (Chicago Fire), Kevin Alston (New Revolution)

Midfielders (9): Dwayne De Rosario (Toronto FC), Marco Pappa (Chicago Fire), Javier Morales (Real Salt Lake), Guillermo Barros Schelotto (Columbus Crew), Sebastien Le Toux (Philadelphia Union), David Ferreira (FC Dallas), Brad Davis (Houston Dynamo), Shalrie Joseph (New England Revolution), Jeff Larentowicz (Colorado Rapids)

Forwards (5): Edson Buddle (LA Galaxy), Landon Donovan (LA Galaxy), Juan Pablo Angel (New York Red Bulls), Brian Ching (Houston Dynamo), Jaime Moreno (D.C. United)

The night before the All-Star game the LA Galaxy and Toronto FC are involved in action. As a result I would expect that Galaxy and Toronto players will make token appearances late in the game and not start. If that is the case, then this is what I expect the MLS starting line-up to be:

Goalkeeper: Rimando
Defenders: Alston, Olave, Marshall, Bornstein
Midfield: Joseph, Pappa,, Schelotto, David
Forwards: Ching, Angel

How do you think the MLS All-Stars will do against Manchester United?
