NEW YORK (AP) — David Beckham and Landon Donovan led four Los Angeles Galaxy players onto the MLS All-Star game roster for the second straight year, and Thierry Henry was among three New York Red Bulls selected.

The league announced the results of the voting by fans on Sunday for the July 27 game against English Premier League champion Manchester United at Red Bull Arena.

Seattle goalie Kasey Keller also was chosen and the defenders will be Sean Franklin and Omar Gonzalez of Los Angeles; Rafa Marquez and Tim Ream of New York; and Matt Besler of Kansas City.

Portland's Jack Jewsbury and Dallas Brek Shea joined Beckham at midfield, and San Jose's Chris Wondolowski will be up front with Henry and Donovan, who tied Eddie Pope for the most All-Star selections with 11.

MLS Commissioner Don Garber will make two picks Saturday and the complete roster will be announced July 18.
