MLS All-Star Game: Manchester United 4, MLS All-Stars 0

2011 AT&T MLS All-Star Game.jpgUPDATE 7:47 p.m. — It’s a final. Manchester United wins 4-0. Nice to see Kasey Keller come on in the 83rd minute.

The MLS All-Star Game kicks off tonight, with the Hans Backe-led league team taking on Manchester United at Red Bull Arena. Kickoff is listed at 5:30 p.m., but will likely by closer to 6 p.m.

No Sounders are expected to play in the exhibition, but Kasey Keller should be in attendance and available as an emergency third goalkeeper. Seattle’s captain was named to the MLS All-Star First XI and was scheduled to fly to Harrison, N.J., this morning from Panama after the team’s CONCACAF Champions League loss to San Francisco FC.

Midfielder Osvaldo Alonso is an inactive MLS All-Star, meaning he isn’t available to play tonight.

I’m not sure if there’s much local interest in the game, but feel free to post your comments below.
