PORTLAND– Caleb Porter is likely going to use all of the players he has available for tonight’s MLS All-Star Game against Bayern Munich, but settling on a starting lineup will definitely not be easy.
With a plethora of midfield and forward options at his disposal, Porter will have to consider just what group will give the MLS All-Stars the best chance of getting today’s match off to a good start. There are some players who seem like safe bets to start, like Thierry Henry and Nick Rimando, but there are several positions that are very much up in the air.
So who will Porter turn to as starters tonight? Here is one possible lineup we could see take the field at Providence Park against Bayern Munich:
