Probable MLS All-Star lineup against Atletico Madrid
The MLS All-Star team already has its probable lineup to face Atletico Madrid this Wednesday night at Orlando City Stadium, with the presence of Ibrahimovic and Vela.
Fans chose their predicted starting lineup ahead of the MLS All-Star Game against Atletico Madrid on Wednesday, July 31, which was made up of the best players in the US league, such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Carlos Vela, Nani, Wayne Rooney, among others.
But not everyone has a spot in the lineup for Wednesday night's match when the MLS stars will face the Spanish side at Orlando City Stadium, as coach James O'Connor will have the last word.
The date has come with Orlando ready to see the MLS prove its potential against one of Europe's giants, a squad that arrives fresh from beating Real Madrid, 7-3 in the International Champions Cup.
MLS All-Star Lineup
Goalkeeper: Brad Guzan (Atlanta United)
Guzan has won the love of the fans for being a constant presence in the USMNT net, but also by being a solid presence in the box of the current MLS champions. It looks like O'Connor will use the goalkeeper from the start.
Defense: Graham Zusi (Sporting Kansas City), Walker Zimmerman (LAFC) Bastian Schweinsteiger (Chicago Fire) and Kemar Lawrence (New York Red Bulls)
Surprisingly, the fans did not choose among the MLS best 11 the German Bastian Schweinsteiger, but that error was amended by the Orlando coach, who is undoubtedly going to put him in the starting XI alongside Graham Zusi, Walker Zimmerman and Kenmar Lawrence.
Midfielders: Jonathan Dos Santos (LA Galaxy), Nicolás Lodeiro (Seattle Sounders), Nani (Orlando City)
The MLS midfield has endless stars; however, players of the quality of Gonzalo Martínez, Ezequiel Barco, among others, will have to wait for their opportunity from the bench. Jonathan Dos Santos, Nani, and Nicolás Lodeiro are the ones who look to start tonight.
Forwards: Carlos Vela (LAFC), Zlatan Ibrahimovic (LA Galaxy) and Wayne Rooney (DC United)
The scary offensive MLS line is formed with Carlos Vela, the best in the league and captain of the All-Star team, joined by Zlatan Ibrahimovic, LA Galaxy scorer and Wayne Rooney who is known for his talent in front of the net.
