MLS announced on Tuesday, during the start of the Skills Challenge, that LA Galaxy midfielder Sebastian Lletget, would be added to the MLS All-Star squad, replacing an injured Emanuel Reynoso. His addition makes it three All-Stars for the Galaxy, as he joins Julian Araujo, and Chicharito.
This marks the first time the 28-year-old has been selected for the MLS All-Star team in his seven years with the MLS, and LA Galaxy. He has notched 12 starts on 13 appearances so far this season. His 91% successful passing distribution this season has contributed to his three assists, and one goal on the year.
With Chicharito having already been announced as missing the match, the addition of Lletget should provide a bit more incentive to tune in tonight. Not to mention, the competitive fire that was stoked in last night’s Liga MX win in the Skills Challenge, means we could see a feisty MLS side looking to put on a show and win back some pride.
