Channel 7 sports reporter Jim Wilson selects his FOXTEL A-League All Stars squad to take on Juventus on August 10 at Sydney-s ANZ Stadium. What do you think?
GK - Ante Covic (Western Sydney Wanderers) Once again, a model of consistency for Western Sydney. The backbone of a solid defence and has kept nine clean sheets this season, the most out of any in the A-League this season.
RB - Ivan Franjic (Brisbane Roar) Established himself as the Socceroos starting right back with a string of stellar performances for the Roar. Provides great width and support going forward.
CB - Jade North(Brisbane Roar) Again another player from the minor premiers but has proven to be a class above in a defence which at times has been saved by its devastating attack
CB - Nikolai Topor Stanley (Western Sydney Wanderers) A second straight All Stars appearance for Topor-Stanley looms after another stellar season at the back for the Wanderers. Has proven to be able to play with a different partner in defence each and every week.
LB - Aziz Behich (Melbourne Heart) My bolter for the team. The Heart may have finished last but Behich provided a threat on a weekly basis, like Franjic is a more of an attacking player will provide plenty of excitement for fans.
CM - Matt McKay (Brisbane Roar) The heart and soul of the minor premiers, McKay will go down as one of the greatest midfielders in A-League history.
CM - Mark Milligan (Melbourne Victory) This was very tough to split with Orlando Engelaar but Milligan makes a such difference to the Victory side. When he went down with injury they struggled but with him in the side they are one of best sides in the competition.
RM - Marcelo Carrusca (Adelaide United) The Argentine has been simply sublime as part of the Josep Gombau revolution in Adelaide. Has scored six goals this season and set up plenty.
LM - James Troisi - (Melbourne Victory) After returning home from a long spell in Europe, Troisi has scored 12 goals and looms as a bolter for the World Cup squad.
ST - Alessandro Del Piero (Sydney FC) The perfect farewell for the Italian magician.
ST - Adam Taggart (Newcastle Jets) What a revelation he has been for the Jets, banged in goals at will this season with 16 in total to win the Golden Boot.
Michael Theo(Brisbane Roar) Besart Berisha (Brisbane Roar) Orlando Engelaar (Melbourne Heart) Gui Finkler (Melbourne Victory) Tomi Juric (Western Sydney Wanderers) Liam Miller (Brisbane Roar) Storm Roux (Central Coast Mariners) Jon McKain (Adelaide United) Thomas Broich (Brisbane Roar)
