The best players in the 2020-21 season in Liga MX will be measured against their MLS counterpart on August 25
Liga MX presented the players who will represent Mexican soccer in the All-Star Game against the best of MLS on August 25. The team, which will be led by Juan Reynoso, is dominated by Cruz Azul and does not have players from Chivas or Pumas.
Juan Reynoso (Cruz Azul) won the best coach of the year from Ignacio Ambriz (León). The intention of Liga MX was that both were in the bench. However, only the Peruvian will be there, after the Mexican left for Spain to lead Huesca.

There will be five central defenders to face the All-Star Game. Matheus Doria (Santos), Pablo Aguilar (Cruz Azul), Víctor Guzmán (Tijuana), César Montes (Monterrey) and William Tesillo (León).
Fernando Navarro (León), Salvador Reyes (Puebla), Juan Escobar (Cruz Azul) and Jesús Gallardo (Monterrey) appear for the winger position.
Eight footballers appear in the midfielder position: Luis Romo (Cruz Azul), Luis Montes (León), Fernando Gorriarán (Santos), Rubens Sambueza (Toluca), Guido Pizarro (Tigres), Pedro Aquino (América), Diego Valdés (Santos ) and Ángel Mena (León).
