Crew-less MLS All-Stars Fall To Manchester United

The MLS All-Stars lost to Manchester United on Wednesday night in front of 26,760 fans at Red Bull Arena in New York, 4-0.  Out of the total 32 players named MLS All-Stars, not one was from the Columbus Crew, who are currently tied for first place in the Eastern Conference.

Anderson scored the first goal of the game in the 2oth minute after some beautiful passes between Wayne Rooney and Dimitar Berbatov opened up a lane to the goal, which Anderson gladly took.

Ji-Sung Park doubled the lead for Manchester in the in the 45th minute.  The South Korean cut back to his left foot in the box, and he finished nicely with a placed shot that beat MLS goalie Faryd Mondragón (Philadelphia Union).

Berbatov was able to get on the score sheet as well.  In the 52nd minute, Rooney played the Bulgarian in on goal.  Berbatov’s chip shot hit the crossbar, but he followed up his miss and blasted the ball into the net.

Danny Welbeck scored United’s fourth and final goal in the 68th minute.  Welbeck cut past two defenders, and his right footed shot took a deflection off MLS defender Geoff Cameron (Houston), which made the ball unreachable for goalie Tally Hall (Houston).

Manchester United midfielder Ji-Sung Park was awarded the MLS All-Star game MVP trophy for his wonderful goal.

The MLS All-Stars also played Manchester United in last year’s MLS All-Star game.  The Red Devils won that game as well, 5-2, in Houston’s Reliant Stadium.
