Besler, Collin and Zusi named to All-Star Roster

Three Sporting KC players will represent their club for the 2013 All-Star game at Sporting Park


Peter Vermes will have three of his own players to use against AS Roma for the 2013 All-Star Game. Matt Besler, Aurelein Collin and Graham Zusi were three of the 20 players named to the game day roster.

This is Besler's second All-Star match after representing the league back in 2011. Aurelein Collin gets the nod for the second straight year after he famously broke his face in last year's showcase. This is Graham Zusi's second straight All-Star selection as well.

Here is the full roster.

Goalkeepers (2): Raul Fernandez (FC Dallas), Nick Rimando (Real Salt Lake)

Defenders (6): Matt Besler (Sporting KC), Aurelien Collin (Sporting KC), Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy), Corey Ashe (Houston Dynamo), Tony Beltran (Real Salt Lake), DeAndre Yedlin (Seattle Sounders)

Midfielders (7): Brad Davis (Houston Dynamo), Will Johnson (Portland Timbers), Mike Magee (Chicago Fire), Graham Zusi (Sporting KC) , Kyle Beckerman (Real Salt Lake), Patrice Bernier (Montreal Impact), Tim Cahill (New York Red Bulls)

Forwards (5): Marco Di Vaio (Montreal Impact), Thierry Henry (New York Red Bulls), Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes), Camilo Sanvezzo (Vancouver Whitecaps FC), Robbie Keane (LA Galaxy)

Sporting leads the league in most selections with three, with New York, Los Angeles, Houston, Real Salt Lake and Montreal all having two. Seven teams were left without one All-Star representative.
