Del Piero could face Reds

Alessandro Del Piero looks likely to spearhead the A-League All Stars' attack against Manchester United in Sydney next month.

The Juventus legend, now playing his football in Australia for Sydney FC, was selected in the largely fan-voted squad for the game at ANZ Stadium on Saturday 20 July.

The 15-man squad was whittled down from an initial shortlist of 35 after more than 30,000 supporters cast their votes and an expert panel, including All Stars coach Ange Postecoglou, had its say.
 
The squad is subject to change and will eventually contain 18 players, with some of the initial choices expected to be unavailable due to injury, international commitments and transfers.

Japanese midfielder Shinji Ono is on the provisional list, as is German Thomas Broich and veteran Australian striker Archie Thompson.

A-League All Stars: Ante Covic, Mathew Ryan; Pedj Bojic, Nikolai Topor-Stanley, Trent Sainsbury, Patrick Zwaanswijk, Adama Traore; Shinji Ono, Thomas Broich, Mark Milligan, Youssouf Hersi, Michael McGlinchey, Archie Thompson; Alessandro Del Piero, Marco Rojas
