Real Salt Lake forward Alvaro Saborio may have just suffered a broken foot while training for Costa Rica, making him a potential scratch for World Cup 2014 in Brazil--but he still may have a shot at making the Major League Soccer All-Star Game because he was named to the ballot on Wednesday, May 28.

Saborio was one of eight RSL players named to the AT&T All-Star Ballot on Wednesday. Joining him on the ballot are goalkeeper Nick Rimando and midfielder Kyle Beckerman--on the U.S. World Cup team heading for Brazil.

Defenders Tony Beltran, Chris Schuler and Nat Borchers, midfielder Javier Morales and forward Joao Plata round out the Real Salt Lake players selected to the ballot. Fans can start voting now until July 11 online for their favorite Real Salt Lake players--or for other players in Major League Soccer who made the ballot.

10 players will be selected based on who are the top vote-getters--and the 11th comes with an interesting twist. Fans will vote for that 11th player, their favorite forward in Major League Soccer by scoring goals with that player in the EA SPORTS FIFA 14 video game on XBOX and PlayStation. One goal equals one vote and the player with the most goals on FIFA 14 will be named the 11th All-Star on July 11.

The 2014 MLS All-Star Game will be held in Providence Park in Portland, Oregon in August on the Portland Timbers home field. The All-Stars will take on German powerhouse Bayern Munich live on ESPN2 and UniMas.

Saborio currently has six goals for Real Salt Lake, tied for the team lead with Plata, who has scored his six on only 18 shots. (Saborio leads the team with 35 shots.) Morales has scored three goals for RSL--but he leads the team with five assists.
