Bastian Schweinsteiger Named MLS All Star Captain

Between the team's stingy defence - it has conceded the second fewest goals in the conference so far - and the off-season acquisition of striker Freddy Mentero, who has eight goals of his own, Vancouver should be in the fight to return to the playoffs this year. Meanwhile, the All-Star Game brings together some top talent.

He'd hang around the sidelines, shag balls, talk with the players and listen to what his dad, Bob, told them. On the other side of the ball is a Real Madrid squad that's had enough high profile preseason games already to find some form. So one Real Madrid preseason friendly is supposedly meaningless well another is supposedly of TREMENDOUS CONSEQUENCE!

The greatest spectacle in soccer rolled into Chicago and even without its biggest attraction it still has managed to draw the eyes of the sport to the lakefront. "Nobody wants to lose", Kaká explained to reporters. "That is going to be helpful for us".

"For the time being, I couldn't be more excited for him", he said.

Chicago Fire coach Veljko Paunovic, a longtime standout as a player for crosstown rivals Atletico Madrid in Spain's La Liga, will manage the MLS All-Stars. Ronaldo is finishing up a vacation and was ordered before a Spanish court on Monday to answer to tax fraud charges. The first-year Designated Player has taken MLS by storm in 2017, leading the league with 16 goals in 20 regular season games.

Now I suppose this year is as good as any to project MLS All Stars rebounding from a loss to Arsenal to claim a fourth win in six years. The game is sold out, but tickets are on resale on Ticketmaster with prices ranging from $250 to $600. So we are in a very good spot. The Marlins appear headed for their eighth consecutive losing season. "Everybody will remember and understand that it's a friendly game but when you step on the field you play to win and play to be sharp".

Schweinsteiger has also emphasised on the overall quality of a group that also includes names such as Gareth Bale and Karim Benzema. The game caps a three-day, MLS-styled celebration of the sport - from matches on the sand at Oak Street beach to star-studded endorsements of the town's deep-dish pizza - that had fans in the City of Big Shoulders following along with their feet. The Orlando City captain and former Real Madrid player will meet some of his fellow European colleagues, especially Zinedine Zidane, Madrid's coach, with whom the Brazilian worked for on that team. Toyota Park hosted the All-Star Game all the way back in 2006, when the All-Stars surprisingly defeated a stacked Chelsea team 1-0.

"I'm not sure which one's better", he said of the various permutations of the All-Star Game he has experienced.

Former Revolution defender and native New Englander Michael Parkhurst (Cranston, R.I.) will suit up for the All-Stars.

Prior to 2005, MLS experimented with several different formats for the All-Star Game.
