Manchester United are at the Red Bull Arena tonight taking on the MLS All-Stars – including former Premier League favourites Thierry Henry and David Beckham.
And that got us thinking – what would an English Premier League All-Star team look like?
We’d love to see a Premier League All-Star Team take on the reigning Champions in a pre-season match-up every year – a bit like the Community Shield, but more entertaining and relevant.
But, given that players can’t play for both squads, the All-Star XI would have to exclude any members of the team that wins the Premier League – which, in the case of the 2010-2011 season was Manchester United.
Given that one simple rule, here’s our best guess at what a Premier League All-Star XI would look like, and – of course – what football boots they wear!
Joe Hart – Manchester City – Umbro Geometra Pro
Samir Nasri – Arsenal – adidas F50 adiZero
Rafael Van Der Vaart – Tottenham Hotspur – Nike CTR360 II
Charlie Adam – Liverpool – adidas adiPower Predator
Gareth Bale – Tottenham Hotspur – adidas F50 adiZero
But as always, we want to know who would make the cut in your All-Star XI.
Remember, they can’t be from Manchester United!
