Colorado sends no players to the MLS All Star Game Starting XI

Landon Donovan headlines the group that will play Manchester United.

Unsurprisingly, the currently underachieving Colorado Rapids will have nobody in the starting lineup against Manchester United for the MLS All Star game. The Los Angeles Galaxy and New York Red Bulls dominated the voting, while the Portland Timbers and Seattle Sounders both used the fan-voting to their advantage to push a player into the line-up. I'm personally surprised that Wondolowski made it, I would have gone with Charlie Davies personally.

Colorado's choices on the ballot had very little chance as both strikers - Conor Casey and Omar Cummings - were both out with injury for large chunks of time, Matt Pickens has been good but not great as usual and the two midfielders being bright spots but on a mediocre team. Drew Moor is probably the best shot that the Rapids have to get a player into the lineup at all, and I personally submitted him as a starter in my mock XI.

Here's the starting lineup that has been presented so far and the teams that the players are from;

Kasey Keller (Seattle Sounders); Omar Gonzalez (LA Galaxy), Sean Franklin (LA Galaxy), Rafa Marquez (New York Red Bulls), Tim Ream (New York Red Bulls); David Beckham (LA Galaxy), Jack Jewsbury (Portland Timbers), Brek Shea (FC Dallas), Landon Donovan (LA Galaxy); Thierry Henry (New York Red Bulls), Chris Wondolowski (San Jose Earthquakes)
