Philadelphia Union will send two players to the MLS All-Star Game on August 10th
The Philadelphia Union will send Kai Wagner and Andre Blake to Minnesota on August 10th for the 2022 MLS All-Star game.
For the second consecutive year, the MLS All-Star game will feature a match against Mexican top-flight Liga MX. The match will take place on August 10th at Minnesota United FC’s Allianz Field.
Last year in their first meeting, the MLS All-Star team beat Liga MX following a 1-1 draw in regulation time. The MLS ended up winning the match 3-2 in a shootout thanks to a penalty-winning goal from FC Dallas and USMNT striker Ricardo Pepi.
