The MLS stars have won three of the five events, including the last, to get their hands on this honorary title, a year after seeing the representatives of the Mexican circuit triumph.
During the “Crossbar Challenge”, which involves hitting the crossbar from a distance of 40 yards, Nashville SC midfielder Hany Mukhtar made his teammates jump by hitting the target.
Previously, Mukhtar had also led his team to victory in the “Touch Challenge”. He brilliantly redirected balls received in midair on targets and MLS won this round 106 to 68.
The other league win from the United States and Canada came in the “Shooting Challenge”, where participants had the objective of knocking down targets from the “penalty” point. The Mexican Hector Herrera betrayed his compatriots by leading the charge for MLS, he who plays with the Houston Dynamo.
The Liga MX meanwhile triumphed in the “Passing Challenge” and “Cross & Volley Challenge” events.
The long-awaited star game between the two circuits will take place on Wednesday evening and will be broadcast on TVA Sports.
Remember that the only CF Montreal player who will take part is Canadian international Kamal Miller, who plays as a defender.
