CHELSEA TO PLAY MLS ALL-STARS JULY 25 AT PPL PARK, FOX SOCCER REPORTS
According to FOX Soccer and Soccer by Ives, two reputable sources within the American soccer community, Chelsea will visit PPL Park July 25 to face the MLS All-Stars in the league's annual all-star game.
A formal announcement is expected Wednesday during an 11:30 a.m. press conference at PPL Park.
MLS all-stars have played an English Premier League team in seven of the last eight years. The MLS stars have lost the last three.
The Union hope to have a representative in this year's game, the first major MLS showcase in the three-year history of PPL Park. Sebastien Le Toux made the cut in 2010 and Faryd Mondragon earned a spot in 2011.
If I was to wage a guess, Sheanon Williams has as good a shot as anybody to make the 2012 all-star team. Not only is the right back consistent, in that he's missed only one match since debuting in 2010, but he's a lockdown defender who can make runs into the offensive third of the pitch. He's been the Union's top player to this point of the season.
Who do you think from the Union deserves consideration? Leave your thoughts below.
