The MLS team of the year features former Newcastle striker Obafemi Martins lining up alongside Thierry Henry,
The Major League Soccer best eleven was named yesterday and Martins was an easy choice having scored 17 goals and also registered 13 assists.
The team was picked by a combination of MLS players, club management and members of the media.
A big pointer to the current and future health of football in America is the fact that six American players make this best eleven.
This rubber stamps the impressive performance the USA national team gave in the World Cup earlier this year.
