Omar Gonzalez scores in defeat as expansion news steals the show at MLS All-Star Game

By Adam Serrano

LA Galaxy defender Omar Gonzalez scored stoppage time of the MLS All-Stars' 3-1 defeat to Italian giants AS Roma, but it was expansion news that stole the show in Kansas City.

At halftime of the match, MLS Commissioner Don Garber revealed that the league will be looking to expand to 24 teams by 2020. In the interview, he also revealed that the league won't be looking to move any teams either. 

Which cities could be in line to get an MLS club? Well, the Orlando City franchise is considered a frontrunner and former Galaxy midfielder David Beckham has been linked to a team in Miami.  As for the other two spots, well there are a host of options ranging from Sacramento, San Antonio, Minneapolis, St. Louis, and even a second team in New York City. 

Video of Gonzalez's goal is below. Also comment about which cities deserve expansion sides in the comment section.
