Ferreira, Pearce named All-Star reserves

According to 3rd Degree sources, FC Dallas midfielder David Ferreira and defender Heath Pearce have been chosen as reserves for the 2010 MLS All-Star team. MLS has yet to make an announcement on the reserve selections.

Peace may end up starting in the All-Star game as MLS All-Star coach Bruce Arena will most likely wish to field a 4-4-2. Pearce is an ideal left back for such a system. Pearce was one of the last players cut from the US World Cup roster and is having an excellent season for FCD, mostly as a right back.

Ferreira is in the midst of a MVP caliber season and perhaps should have gotten more votes for the starting All-Star XI. Ferreira is in top form right now having scored in three straight games for FCD, and in four of the last five.
