MLS All-Stars crush Fulham, 4-1
Columbus, OH. - The MLS All-Stars, led by several members of the New England Revolution, crushed Fulham’s hopes of bringing the All-Star trophy back to London with them. The Revs Taylor Twellman, Clint Dempsey, Shalrie Joseph and Matt Reis all started the match for the All-Stars, with Michael Parkhurst coming in off the bench. Twellman, Dempsey and Joseph all figured into the score sheet and Twellman earned Man of the Match as the All-Stars won by a score of 4-1. Americans Brian McBride and Carlos Bocanegra were in the starting line-up for English Premier League opponents Fulham FC.

Having only practiced together once, the All-Stars looked a little disjointed to start the match, but took the lead in 23rd minute. Landon Donovan sent a pass into Taylor Twellman about 16 yards from goal, who beat Bocanegra to the ball with a slide, sending the ball into the left corner of the net past ‘keeper Mark Crossley.

Five minutes later, the Donovan-Twellman combo hooked up again, this time Twellman sending a shot just wide of the far post.

Fulham knotted the score at one in the 36th minute, when defender Chris Albright took down Luis Boa Morte in the box. Referee Ricardo Valenzuela immediately pointed to the spot for a penalty kick. Claus Jensen took the penalty kick and sent goalie Matt Reis the wrong way to tie the score.

Clint Dempsey got involved in the attack two minutes later, but his shot after a perfect pass from Donovan was just wide.

Fulham had their best chance in the 50th minute, when a Brian McBride pass released Tomasz Radzinski free of the defense. Radzinski was forced to shoot from a bad angle and his shot went off the post and out, though Reis was right there had it been on target.

Ronnie O’Brien challenged Fulham substitute ‘keeper Jaroslav Drobny in the 54th minute with his blast from outside of the box forcing Drobny into a diving save.

The All-Stars took the lead in the 56th minute, when an Ivan Guerrero cross was cleared out of the box by Carlos Bocanegra. The clearance fell to Clint Dempsey who one timed a shot to the left side of the net. Though it seemed destined for the net, O’Brien got a touch on it before it went in, giving the goal to him.

Twellman broke free in the box in the 72nd minute, but his shot from a tough angle hit off the post. A long range blast from substitute Jeff Cunningham was denied by a diving Drobny a few minutes later.

Cunningham put the game out of reach in the 85th minute. Substitute Michael Parkhurst sent a long pass up field that Christian Gomez headed into Cunningham’s path. Cunningham sent a low shot past Drobny to make the score 3-1.

Cunningham scored again just before the end of regulation, taking a pass from Shalrie Joseph near midfield and running through Fulham’s defense before slotting it past Drobny.

The All-Stars next travel to Madrid to face Spanish power Real Madrid on August 23rd.
