All-Star

01 August 12:09 pm

The 2013 MLS All-Star Game didn't quite go according to plan for Peter Vermes' side as the MLS All-Stars fell to the Italian side 3-1, but the highlight for FC Dallas fans was surely seeing Raul Fernandez start between the pipes. The Peruvian had a fairly quiet first half in goal making one save while allowing a fourth-minute goal that he could do nothing about.

Raul's start in goal was the first time an FC Dallas goalkeeper has started the MLS All-Star game since Mark Dodd in 1997. Raul spoke to MLSsoccer.com after last night's match.

MLS announced today that George John has been named to the 2013 MLS All-Star inactive roster. Per the CBA, MLS names 32 All-Stars annually. The inactive roster is determined by the player vote.

"It feels good to get recognized by my peers in the league and it’s obviously a huge honor," John said on Wednesday morning. "I’m really happy about it."

FC Dallas is 7-2-5 this year in George John's 14 starts with 10 goals allowed in the 1170 minutes John has played for a GAA average of just .77. 

Having missed this season's first match in Seattle due to injury, John returns to his hometown for the first time this year in Saturday's game at CenturyLink Field against Seattle Sounders FC.

Attention all FC Dallas fans! We're doing great in 2013 MLS All-Star voting so far with Raul Fernandez 3rd among all goalkeepers, but it's time to ramp things up! 

Today, June 20, at 11:00AM MLS All-Star Twitter voting gets underway! Here's the details: 

  • Voting is open until from 12pm ET Thursday, June 20 to 11:59pm ET Friday, June 21, 2013. A short window, so make sure you get as many tweets in as you can. 
  • An eligible vote consists of the hashtag #MLSAllStar

    • AND the player's full name (first and last required) with or without a space (Example: Raul Fernandez, or RaulFernandez);
    • OR their twitter @handle (Example: @RaulFernandezV1).
  • A user may vote for multiple players in a tweet; however, a user may not vote for a single player multiple times within one tweet.
  • A user may only vote for players on the All-Star ballot (click here to see the full ballot).
  • There is no limit to the number of tweets a user may submit for any one player. Go nuts. 
  • Each Twitter vote counts equal to one text vote, or one online vote. 

So you've got 140 characters to vote for all six of the nominated players. Unfortunately, however much a few of our players may have been snubbed from the ballot(we won't name names), a vote for them isn't valid so focus your tweets on the six players that count!
