Kane, Yedlin headline Tottenham's roster for MLS All-Star Game
U.S. men's national team winger/defender DeAndre Yedlin and 2014-15 Premier League breakout star Harry Kane headline Tottenham's traveling roster for Wednesday's MLS All-Star Game in Colorado, the club announced on Monday.
Yedlin, who moved to Tottenham from Seattle in the winter, joins Spurs after playing for the U.S. in the CONCACAF Gold Cup. He assisted on former Tottenham forward Clint Dempsey's equalizer in the third-place match, which was ultimately won by Panama in penalty kicks.
The 21-year-old Kane, who was one of the stories of last season, is coming off a 21-goal campaign. Only Manchester City's Sergio Aguero (26) scored more in England's top flight last season.
Other notable names making the trip for Tottenham include Argentine midfielder Erik Lamela, Danish playmaker Christian Eriksen and France goalkeeper Hugo Lloris.
Among those not with the club are forwards Emmanuel Adebayor and Roberto Soldado and England international wingers Andros Townsend and Aaron Lennon.
MLS will counter with a squad captained by Orlando City's Kaká. The Brazilian star will be joined by the likes of Dempsey, Steven Gerrard, David Villa, Sebastian Giovinco, Kei Kamara, Robbie Keane and Michael Bradley. Frank Lampard was slated to be on the squad but is injured and has been replaced by Dax McCarty.
Here is Tottenham's full squad for the match:
GOALKEEPERS: Hugo Lloris, Michel Vorm, Luke McGee, Tom Glover
DEFENDERS: Kyle Walker, Kieran Trippier, DeAndre Yedlin, Danny Rose, Ben Davies, Toby Alderweireld, Eric Dier, Kevin Wimmer, Jan Vertonghen, Federico Fazio
MIDFIELDERS: Nabil Bentaleb, Harry Winks, Mousa Dembele, Josh Onomah, Christian Eriksen, Nacer Chadli, Tom Carroll, Dele Alli, Erik Lamela
FORWARDS: Harry Kane, Shaq Coulthirst
