Jakob Glesnes Added To Roster For 2022 MLS All-Star Game
Glesnes is named to his first career MLS All-Star Game in his third MLS season. The center back has played a vital role on the league’s staunchest defense, starting all 24 matches for a Philadelphia Union squad that leads the Eastern Conference with 45 points (12-3-9) and has allowed a league-low 18 goals in 24 matches (0.75 goals allowed per game). The 0.75 goals allowed per game is on pace for the second-best defensive record in league history, behind only 2010 Real Salt Lake (0.67 goals conceded per game).
