The commissioner of Major League Soccer has selected New York Red Bulls forward Juan Agudelo and Sporting Kansas City striker Omar Bravo for the All-Star squad that will face English Premier League champion Manchester United later this month.

Commissioner Don Garber’s two picks were announced by MLS on Saturday.

The 18-year-old Agudelo is the first player from the league’s Homegrown Player initiative to be named an All-Star. He has four goals in 14 games with New York this season.

Bravo leads Sporting KC with four goals and has two assists in 12 games. The 31-year-old is in his first season in MLS after starring at Chivas Guadalajara.

The July 27 exhibition against Man United will be at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J.
