[MLS ALL-STAR GAME] U.S. World Cup defender DeAndre Yedlin is among 20 Homegrown players named to the inaugural Chipotle MLS Homegrown Game roster that will face the Portland Timbers U-23s at Providence Park in Portland. The game on Aug. 4 will take place two days before the AT&T MLS All-Star Game in which the MLS All-Stars will face Bayern Munich.

Yedlin, who is the subject of extensive interest from clubs abroad after his excellent World Cup, played in the 2013 AT&T MLS All-Star Game. He'll likely again play in the main event -- if still in MLS -- in which case a Homegrown player will replace him on the Homegrown Game roster.

Players representing 12 MLS clubs will make up this year’s Homegrown team. The squad includes two players -- Karl Ouimette and Wandrille Lefevre -- on the Montreal Impact, which has a Concacaf Champions league game on Aug. 5 against FAS of El Salvador.

The Timbers U-23s are 4-4-4 in the amateur PDL, whose regular season ends July 20.
 
2014 Chipotle MLS Homegrown Roster:
Goalkeeper: Jon Kempin (Sporting KC), Matt Lampson (Columbus Crew).
Defenders: Connor Lade (New York Red Bulls), Ashtone Morgan (Toronto FC), Shane O’Neill (Colorado Rapids), Karl Ouimette (Montreal Impact), Erik Palmer-Brown (Sporting Kansas City), DeAndre Yedlin (Seattle Sounders FC).
Midfielders: Steven Evans (Portland Timbers), Wandrille Lefevre (Montreal Impact), Chris Ritter (Chicago Fire), Harry Shipp (Chicago Fire), Russell Teibert (Vancouver Whitecaps FC), Wil Trapp (Columbus Crew).
Forwards: Caleb Calvert (Chivas USA), Bradford Jamieson IV (LA Galaxy), Sean Okoli (Seattle Sounders), Dillon Serna (Colorado Rapids), Tommy Thompson (San Jose Earthquakes), Gyasi Zardes (LA Galaxy).

    I wish they did it like the nba and had. Freshman vs sophomores game instead (rookies vs 2nd years). Who cares about the u23 Portland team???
