As if American soccer fans needed more proof that we’re behind the curve when it comes to talented soccer players, the MLS All-Stars lost a disheartening 4-0 match against Manchester United on Wednesday. The MLS squad put together a few decent runs in the first 20 minutes of the match, but a goal from Anderson, followed by Park Ji-Sung just before halftime, was only the beginning of the downfall.

Wayne Rooney and Danny Welbeck added goals in the second half to make the final 4-0, Manchester United. Adding another blow to the soccer fans of the nation, after the tough loss in the Women’s World Cup.

It leaves the question for many as to why the MLS All-Star game even features an international team. What our your thoughts?
