The annual MLS vs some foreign club extravaganza takes place tonight as the All-Stars from around the league square off against the EPL’s Arsenal.
MLS has plenty of fresh faces on this year’s roster from FC Dallas’ own Mauro Diaz and Kellyn Acosta to Philadelphia teammates Andre Blake and rookie Keegan Rosenberry.
The North London side heads to San Jose for their preseason match as they look to build on a second-place finish in last year’s EPL table.
MLS All-Stars look to make it a three-year winning streak against foreign clubs, as they beat Tottenham last year and German giants Bayern Munich the year before.
