Former Manchester United trio Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Wayne Rooney and Nani headline the squad, which also includes Mexico international's Carlos Vela and Jonathan dos Santos.

Following an initial list of 11 players, which was determined by fan voting, another 15 players were selected on Monday, 13 names by All-Star coach James O'Connor and two by league commissioner Don Garber.
