Toronto FC's Sebastian Giovinco, Montreal Impact stars Laurent Ciman, Ignacio Piatti and Didier Drogba and Vancouver Whitecaps defender Kendall Waston were among those chosen on Sunday to the MLS all-star game.

The MLS all-stars will play English club Arsenal FC in San Jose on July 28.

The 26-man roster is made up of 24 players chosen by all-star coach Dominic Kinnear of the San Jose Earthquakes – with Fan XI and player voting taken into consideration – and two picks by the league's commissioner. The roster includes representation from 19 MLS teams and is a mix of 16 all-star newcomers and 10 veterans.

All eleven players named to the Fan XI as nominated by media and selected by fans, were named to the roster including Giovinco, Ciman and Drogba.

Joining them are 13 additional league standouts including Waston, Piatti, and Brampton, Ont., native Cyle Larin of Orlando City.

Larin, 21, is the youngest player on the MLS all-star squad. The 2015 rookie of the year leads the Lions with nine goals in 18 games played.
