MLS All-Stars to play Roma at Sporting Park

Paolo Bruno

It was announced Wednesday night that the 2013 All-Star game opponent will be Italian Serie A club AS Roma.

In a rather poorly-made announcement at halftime of the USA-Belgium friendly it was let known that the MLS All-Stars will be playing AS Roma at Sporting Park on July 31st.

This is the first time that the MLS All-Star game has involved a Serie A team and also the first time that they have played in Kansas City.

Roma features United States international Michael Bradley and Italian international Francesco Totti in the midfield and finished sixth in the 2012-2013 Serie A league.

Personally I'm not too excited about this opponent. Roma, of course, is a well-known club but Serie A is no English Premier League and Roma is no Chelsea. Regardless it should be a pretty fun night at Sporting Park on July 31st. We'll probably see the same All-Stars as last year when Jimmy Nielsen, Aurelien Collin and Graham Zusi represented the MLS in Philadelphia.
