Giovinco, Drogba, Ciman named MLS all-stars

Los Angeles Galaxy forward Giovani dos Santos has been named to the 2016 AT&T MLS All-Star Fan XI, the league announced Saturday.

I knew it, you knew it, and now fans from all around Major League Soccer have made it official in Nagbe's sixth year in the league.

This will the first multiple-Union All-Star game since 2012, when Carlos Valdes and Michael Farfan represented Philadelphia. With three goals and five assists this season, Kaká has figured in almost a goal per game.

While 10 of the 11 players on the Fan XI are determined by fan voting online at MLSsoccer.com, the 11 player is determined through the AT&T/EA SPORTS™ "More Than a Vote" Challenge. The All-Star ballot featured a total of 160 players, as chosen by a panel of media members.

Besler, 29, earns MLS All-Star accolades for the fifth time in his career, third most in club history behind Preki (seven) and Jimmy Conrad (six).

MLS will take on Arsenal FC (England) in Santa Clara, Calif. July 28. The Brazilian superstar scored a goal and registered one assist en route to MLS All-Star Most Valuable Player honors.

NYCFC was one of three teams with two players named to the Fan XI, along with Philadelphia's Andre Blake and Keegan Rosenberry, and Montreal's Laurent Ciman and Didier Drogba. San Jose Earthquakes coach Dominic Kinnear will pick the starters, along with the rest of the roster, which will be announced on July 17.
