Nicol to summon Onstad, Ralston and Angel
July 15th, 2008 7AM

TAGS:  mls


[MLS ALL-STAR GAME] Of the five players All-Star coach Steve Nicol will add to his squad to face English club West Ham United next week in Toronto, three of them - according to a source -- will be Red Bulls striker Juan Pablo Angel, Houston goalie Pat Onstad, and Revs' attacker Steve Ralston. That leaves two more players to be named by Nicol and an additional two picks from Commissioner Don Garber to round out the 18-man roster.

Onstad will probably be Houston's only representative, since the Dynamo and D.C. United play a makeup game at RFK Stadium next Tuesday, just two days prior to the All-Star Game. A fierce lightning storm suspended play in their June 4. It will be replayed in its entirety after officials stopped play in the 16th minute.

Eleven players were selected by balloting conducted amongst fans, players, media members, and coaches/general managers. The MLS All-Stars play West Ham at BMO Field in Toronto July 24.
