MOST COMMENTED

The top players in Major League Soccer will face English Premier League team Everton in the July 29 MLS All-Star game at Rio Tinto Stadium in Salt Lake City. Everton, whose goalkeeper is American Tim Howard, recently advanced to the FA Cup final against Chelsea on May 30 and is in sixth place in the English Premier League.

The Toffees' squad includes England veteran Phillip Neville and recent England call-up Joleon Lescott. Its foreign players include Tim Cahill (Australia), Marouane Fellaini (Belgium), Louis Saha (France) and Joseph Yobo and Yakubu Aiyegbeni (Nigeria).

Five of the 13 MLS All-Star Games have been against foreign clubs and the MLS All-Stars have won them all. Last year, the MLS All-Stars defeated beat West Ham United, 3-2. They beat Glasgow Celtic, 2-0, in 2007; Chelsea 1-0, in 2006; Fulham, 5-1, in 2005; and Chivas Guadalajara, 3-1, in 2003.
