Goalkeeper Zach Thornton replaces injured Pat Onstad on All-Star team

MLS announced this today:
Chivas USA goalkeeper Zach Thornton has been selected to replace Houston Dynamo goalkeeper Pat Onstad, who strained his back in a 1-0 loss to New England on Saturday night.
Thornton is second in MLS in shutouts (7) and third in goals against average (0.88) and went 401 minutes without surrendering a goal, from April 22 to May 16. He has played every minute of every league game for Chivas USA.
This marks the sixth All-Star selection for the 13-year MLS veteran, and the first since 2003 when he was a member of the Chicago Fire.
Also, Sounders FC’s Freddie Ljungberg is one of the MLS All-Stars and Everton players that will appear at the opening press conference in Park City, Utah tomorrow afternoon.
Commissioner Don Garber will make a special announcement to media following the MLS All-Star Game press conference, at approximately 2:30 p.m (1:30 Seattle).
MLS All-Stars practice at 2:30, Everton at 4.
