The MLS players will take aim on a third straight victory against a high-profile international opponent in the All-Star Game later this month. And on Sunday, San Jose and MLS All-Star coach Dominic Kinnear will unveil the roster he plans to use to accomplish the feat.
The All-Star gameday roster will be announced during halftime of an ESPN match featuring Montreal and New York City FC. The game starts at 5 p.m. Sunday.
Sporting Kansas City defender Matt Besler was named part of the MLS All-Star Fan XI last week, which makes him a likely— but not guaranteed — inclusion on the gameday roster.
The MLS All-Stars are set to face English club Arsenal FC on July 28 in San Jose.
Besler, Benny Feilhaber and Graham Zusi represented Sporting KC in last year’s game, when the MLS All-Stars defeated Tottenham Hotspur 2-1.
