Tonight, the MLS All-Stars took on Bayern Munich at Providence Park in Portland. And even though Bayern Munich controlled the pace and possession for a majority of the match, it was the MLS All-Stars who surged back from early 1-0 deficit to take the lead and hold on for the victory.
In the 8th minute, Robert Lewandowski helped The Reds strike first with a top shelf rocket off his right foot.
It took a while for the MLS All-Stars to respond, but in the 51st minute, the league's leading goal scorer Bradley Wright-Phillips showed that top form with this well-placed strike past the outstretched arms of goalkeeper Tom Starke.
In the 70th minute, the MLS All-Stars strike again. This time, it's Landon Donovan, who came into the match in place of Thierry Henry, settling a lob pass onto his foot and guiding it into the back of the net.
The MLS All-Stars would hold onto that 2-1 lead and capture the W. And while most people would probably consider this match to be a friendly of sorts. Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola was the furthest thing from friendly when that final whistle was blown, refusing to shake the hand of MLS All-Star coach Caleb Porter.
Donovan went on to win the MVP award and Guardiola, who was probably upset with the aggressiveness from some of the MLS All-Stars, went on to say that he didn't shake Porter's hand because he "didn't see them." Yeah...okay.
