As was expected to happen today, Major League Soccer announced the "reserve" or inactive players who complete the 32-player All-Star Game roster.

These players will not participate in tonights action - indeed, most of them aren't in Philadelphia - but they get bonuses as part of the collectively bargained total number of All-Stars who are recognized. Voting on the list is done by MLS players.

There are 13 in all. Originally there were going to be 14, but the addition of Philadelphia Union midfielder Michael Farfan to the game day roster reduced the number of reserves.

So, congratulations to:

Goalkeepers

Jon Busch, San Jose Earthquakes
Nick Rimando, Real Salt Lake

Defenders

Geoff Cameron, Houston Dynamo
Jámison Olave, Real Salt Lake

Midfielders 

Marvin Chávez, San Jose Earthquakes
Brad Davis, Houston Dynamo
Roger Espinoza Sporting Kansas City
Marco Pappa, Chicago Fire
Brek Shea, FC Dallas 

Forwards 

Kenny Cooper, New York Red Bulls
Fabián Espindola, Real Salt Lake
Kei Kamara, Sporting Kansas City
Fredy Montero, Seattle Sounders
