andre-blake - 2021 - philadelphia - thumbs-up

Philadelphia Union goalkeeper Andre Blake has been added to MLS' roster for the 2021 MLS All-Star Game presented by Target, it was announced Friday.

Blake was named to the All-Star roster in 2016 and 2019, becoming the first two-time All-Star in Union history. Now, he extends that record to three nods.

The 30-year-old signed with the Union when he was selected by Philadelphia No. 1 overall in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft, the first goalkeeper ever to be selected with the top pick in the history of the event.

In 2020, with Blake leading from the back, the Union made history as they became the only team in MLS history to win every home match in a single season (9-0-0). They also ended the year with the fewest goals allowed in MLS, as well as the fewest goals allowed in a single season in Union history. That all culminated in the club’s first Supporters’ Shield trophy, as well as Blake being named the 2020 Allstate MLS Goalkeeper of the Year.

Blake joins Union left back Kai Wagner as a 2021 All-Star.
