- 2011 MLS All-Star Game
Forgive me for being a tad late to this party. I’ve been away from the computer for most of the day and I’m starting to catch up here. The 2011 MLS All-Star Game roster was announced this afternoon and for the most part, the 20-man game roster from Hans Backe isn’t too shocking.
Only a couple real shockers, first off is Houston keeper Tally Hall. It’s shocking in a good way really as Hall has really put on a show this season for the Dynamo and is a reason why they are a contender this season. He’s had his bad moments but his good moments are definitely getting noticed. The second surprise to me was Colorado striker Omar Cummings. The Jamaican has been injured for a good chunk of this season, so it was shocking to see his name called up for this game.
More names will be released later who are not apart of the gameday roster. We knew guys from Seattle, Toronto and Dallas would not be involved due to their CCL games coming up. Its a bit shocking that Dallas only has Brek Shea on the inactive roster. You’d think someone like Kevin Hartman or George John would have been named as well.
