AS Roma will be the opponent in the 2013 AT&T MLS All-Star Game in Kansas City, according to ESPN's Taylor Twellman.

The former New England Revolution striker reported at halftime of the US-Belgium friendly that the Serie A club will be the latest European club to face the MLS All-Stars. Roma, who feature US national teamer Michael Bradley and former Italian international Francesco Totti, would be the first Italian club to participate in the MLS All-Star Game.
