Man United to play MLS All-Stars again on July 27

Manchester United will play in Major League Soccer’s All-Star game for the second straight year.

The game, part of the Red Devils’ preseason tour, will be played July 27 at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, New Jersey.

Last July 28, Manchester United beat the MLS All-Stars 5-2 before 70,728 at Reliant Stadium in Houston. With most of the club’s World Cup players still on post-tournament vacation, Federico Macheda scored twice, and Javier Hernandez, Darron Gibson and Tom Cleverley had one goal apiece.

Manchester United plans to announce its 2011 preseason tour Tuesday at a news conference with manager Alex Ferguson at Red Bull Arena. It will be preparing for the start of the Premier League season on Aug. 13.
