The MLS team will be captained by Brazilian legend Kaka. There are plenty of stars in the lineup for this match, including current top scorer David Villa, former Chelsea legend Didier Drogba, standout Philadelphia Union goalkeeper Andre Blake, Mexican national team striker Giovani Dos Santos and World Cup champion Andrea Pirlo.

English Premier League second-place finishers Arsenal lines up against the MLS All-Star. Some key Premier League players feature in the Arsenal lineup, such as Santi Cazorla, Hector Bellerin and Theo Walcott. The London-based club is one of the biggest in the world.

Unfortunately, Kansas City, Kan., native at Sporting Kansas City star central defender Matt Besler will miss the MLS All-Star Game with a left thigh injury. Besler was named to the roster on July 9. This season with Sporting KC, he has made 12 appearances and scored one goal, a game-winner at home against the Columbus Crew. Due to his inability to play on Thursday, Besler will be unable to play in Sporting KC’s Aug. 6 match against the Portland Timbers. You can grab tickets to that game from Tickets For Less.

This marks the first time in six years that a Sporting KC player has not played in the MLS All-Star Game. In previous years, Sporting players Matt Besler, Graham Zusi and Dom Dwyer have featured in previous All-Star Games. Former players Omar Bravo, Jimmy Nielsen and Aurelien Collin have also played.

It has been another exciting season in MLS. The Colorado Rapids have emerged as the league’s team to beat this season, featuring a historically good defense and welcoming United States national team legend Tim Howard at goalkeeper in the middle of the season.
