How to watch the pre-season match between the MLS All-Stars and Arsenal, with kick-off time and team news.
On Wednesday, Arsenal will meet the MLS All-Stars in a pre-season friendly for the 2023-24 season at Audi Field.
Arsenal had a successful season, finishing second in the Premier League. In the forthcoming campaign, they will attempt to build on their previous success. The MLS All-Stars are a group of Major League Soccer’s greatest players. They will want to put Arsenal to the test and demonstrate their abilities to the rest of the globe.
The All-Star team, coached by Wayne Rooney, consists of 28 players chosen through three distinct procedures. A combined voting of supporters, media, and fellow players resulted in the selection of 12 players. Rooney personally chose 14 players. Finally, MLS Commissioner Don Garber was given the ability to choose two players for the squad.
To be considered for selection, players must have played in at least half of their team’s league games up until the middle of May. As a result of this criterion, Lionel Messi, who recently joined Inter Miami, was unable to be featured in the All-Star squad.
The game is likely to be a tight one, with both sides desperate to get a victory. Fans of both clubs should find the game entertaining.
