In what might be a good omen for the Foxtel A-League All Stars, Tim Cahill’s MLS All Stars defeated European powerhouse Bayern Munich 2-1 in Portland today.
US striker Landon Donovan scored the winner with 20 minutes to go at Providence Park.
Earlier, new Bayern signing Robert Lewandowski opened the scoring after eight minutes before Bradley Wright-Phillips equalised for the MLS All Stars.
The win continues the upswing in fortunes for US Soccer after their impressive campaign at the recent World Cup in Brazil.
And it also continues Cahill's Midas touch after his stellar World Cup and recent ESPY award.
However the win for the MLS All Stars was shrouded in controversy with the home side’s coach Caleb Porter’s apparently snubbed by Bayern Munich coach Pep Guardiola when offering a handshake to the Spanish coach following the final whistle.
Twitter lit up following the apparent incident, though the coach of the US side later played it down.
