LA Galaxy’s Landon Donovan has been named in the 13th consecutive MLS All-Star team to face Italian opponents AS Roma at Sporting Park in Kansas City on 31 July 2013.

Donovan, 31, has played in each MLS All-Star team dating back to 2001, which was his first season in the league.

The American has been added to the squad to replace injured team-mate Robbie Keane.

The all-time leading scorer for the Galaxy, who are currently third place in the Western Conference with 33 points, Donovan has three goals and six assists in 13 league appearances this season.

The 31-year-old has recently helped his national side to their fifth CONCACAF Gold Cup title with a 1-0 victory over Panama.

Donovan has won four of the six tournaments in which he has played in: 2002, 2005, 2007 and 2013.

He becomes the just the fourth player in CONCACAF history to score more than 50 international goals.

The MLS All-Stars have won five of the past eight matches, including last July's victory over Chelsea.
