The best thing to come out of this MLS All-Star break is probably Dave Martinez's article on the off-field exploits of Thierry Henry. If the league must persist in disrupting its own competition by providing pre-season opposition to visiting teams, let these occasions at least bring us some interesting stories.
The second-best thing to come of this MLS All-Star break might be the chance to see New York Red Bulls' prospects Tyler Adams and Derrick Etienne play for the league's Homegrown team against a Mexico U-20 selection.
The Homegrown game has only been around since 2014, and it has not yet produced a truly memorable match. The inaugural game was against Portland Timbers U-23s and largely defined by both sides' lack of preparation. It finished 0-0. Last year's match against Club America's U-20s finished 1-1, with Las Aguilas winning the penalty shoot-out that followed.
Whatever occurs in this game's third incarnation, it's another moment in the developing careers of two RBNY players. MLS will stream the game on its official site.
