MLS All-Stars 1, AS Roma 3
MLS All-Star Game Recap



KANSAS CITY, Kan. – For all of the parties and hype building up to Kansas City's first MLS All-Star game, AS Roma took the match itself seriously. It showed.

The largest crowd in Sporting Park history got treated to a clinic on creative, efficient, aggressive soccer on Wednesday night. It came at the expense of the MLS All-Stars, though, with the Serie A side cruising to a 3-1 victory in front of a standing room-only crowd of 21,175.

Kevin Strootman scored his first goal since joining the Giallorossi, who became just the third foreign club to beat the All-Stars in 11 matches. Alessandro Florenzi and Júnior Tallo added second-half tallies for Roma.

LA Galaxy center back Omar Gonzalez pulled one back late, heading home a free kick by Vancouver's Camilo in second-half stoppage time.

At least MLS managed to score, Roma clearly had the better midfield play throughout. Bradley looked nice for Roma too.

Ya Roma got a great midfield probably not as good as Juventus but it will get there when it grows more. With guys like De Rossi and Totti to lead the younger guy like Pjanic,Strootman and Bradley it could become one of the best in Europe
