Houston Dynamo head coach Dominic Kinnear, who will coach the Major League Soccer All-Star Team, has selected six additional MLS players to round out the All-Star roster. All of his picks come from Houston, Seattle Sounders FC, or the Kansas City Wizards.
From his own team come goalkeeper and goals against average leader Pat Onstad, midfielder and league assist leader Brad Davis, and striker and five-time All-Star Brian Ching.
Joining Kasey Keller and Freddie Ljungberg from expansion side Seattle will be Colombian pair Jhon Kennedy Hurtado and Fredy Montero. Montero will replace the injured Guillermo Barros Schelotto in the 18-man roster.
For his magical play in attack this season, Wizard forward Davy Arnaud makes the All-Star team. Arnaud is currently with the United States national team in the Gold Cup, and has forced himself into the starting lineup with a goal and an assist in two games.
The All-Star Team will play Everton on July 29 in Real Salt Lake's Rio Tinto Stadium.
