When you look over that roster, it's very evident that this year's MLS All Star game is pretty much a replay of the USA vs Germany match that was saw this summer at the FIFA World Cup. However, both sides get to sprinkle in a few other talented players. The match will take place on August 6 at Providence Park in Portland, Oregon. The All Star Game will be the second match on Bayern Munich's "US Tour". The first will be on July 31 against Chivas de Guadalajara at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey.
