We already knew Zlatan Ibrahimović, Wayne Rooney and Carlos Vela would be a part of the 2019 MLS All-Star Game.

Now, we know the rest of the roster.

The 26-member 2019 MLS All-Star Game roster features a mixture of big names and young talent.

Orlando City coach James O’Connor made 13 selections for the contest and will be the coach for the MLS side. O’Connor’s  selections included Atlanta United forward Josef Martinez, LAFC forward Diego Rossi and Toronto FC midfielder Alejandro Pozuelo.

MLS Commissioner Don Garber made two selections for the roster, adding FC Dallas’ Paxton Pomykal and Real Salt Lake goalkeeper Nick Rimando.
