Major League Soccer rewarded the Galaxy for its 11-0 start Monday by selecting five players to the Western Conference all-star team, but, apparently, that was not reward enough.
Midfielders Cobi Jones and Mauricio Cienfuegos, forward Eduardo Hurtado, defender Robin Fraser and goalkeeper Jorge Campos were all selected starters for the July 14 game at Giants Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. The Galaxy's Lothar Osiander will coach the West squad.
Despite having more starters then any other team, the reaction from the Galaxy was mixed.
"It is an honor, and I feel like we are being rewarded, but still I feel that we should have had more players selected," Fraser said. "There is no reason why a guy like [Dan] Calichman should not be selected, or [Mark] Semioli, and there are a few other guys who should be on that team."
The Dallas Burn also placed five players on the West team. San Jose had three players picked, including forward Eric Wynalda.
