The trio gives Sounders FC the highest representation of any team.
This is the third All-Star designation for Dempsey, although his first as a Sounder. It is the second such honor for Yedlin, and the first for Martins.
Here is the team as decided by fan vote on the MLSsoccer.com website and through Twitter:
goalkeeper Nick Rimando (Salt Lake); defenders: Matt Besler (Kansas City), Omar Gonzalez (Los Angeles) and Yedlin; midfielders: Kyle Beckerman (Salt Lake), Michael Bradley (Toronto), Dempsey and Graham Zusi (Kansas City); forwards: Landon Donovan (Los Angeles), Thierry Henry (New York) and Martins.
Those players will not necessarily be on the 20-man game-day roster, which will be selected by All-Star coach Caleb Porter of the Portland Timbers and commissioner Don Garber. Porter will name 18 players based on availability and tactical considerations, while Garber will add two. However, all Fan XI players are considered among the 32 All-Stars mandated by the league’s collective bargaining agreement.
The actual game-day roster will be announced Saturday during ESPN2’s broadcast of the Kansas City-Los Angeles match.
Those MLS All-Stars will face German power Bayern Munich at 6:30 p.m. Aug.6 at Providence Park in Portland.
