KANSAS CITY, Kan. (AP) _ Michael Bradley got his start in professional soccer as an 18-year-old midfielder for what would eventually become the New York Red Bulls of Major League Soccer.

Now he gets a chance to see just how far the league has come.

Bradley will join Francesco Totti and the rest of Italian club AS Roma in taking on the best that MLS has to offer in the league's annual All-Star game on Wednesday night at Sporting Park.

The MLS is 7-2-1 in All-Star games since the current format featuring an international opponent was adopted more than a decade ago. Both of the losses came to Manchester United of the English Premier League, while the MLS side beat Chelsea last year.
