Major League Soccer finally announced the opponent at the 2013 All Star Game in Kansas City, and at least one player on that team should be a household name to U.S. soccer fans.

U.S. international Michael Bradley and Serie A side A.S. Roma will come to Sporting Park on July 31 to face off against the MLS All Stars, pitting the likes of Bradley, Pablo Daniel Osvaldo, and club captain Francesco Totti against this season’s crop of All Stars.

The match will be the first time that Bradley faces MLS opposition since he left the New York Metrostars at the end of the 2005 season. Roma’s visit to Kansas City will mark the first time a Serie A side has taken part in the annual All Star Game.

What do you make of this news? Excited to see Bradley and Totti? Don’t like the choice? Who would you have liked to face the MLS All Stars?
