2012 MLS All Star Game Final Score: Eddie Johnson Deflection Beats Chelsea, 3-2

For the second time in six years, the MLS All-Star team has toppled Chelsea FC of the English Premier League in the friendly match. The match put fans at home and PPL Park in Philadelphia on the edge of their seats. A goal at stoppage time by Eddie Johnson gave the MLS team a 3-2 win.

Johnson, from the Seattle Sounders, got a break from a deflection off the foot of David Luiz. The image of the game-winning goal is likely to madden Chelsea fans, whose team is the defending European champs.

D.C. United teammates Chris Pontius and Dwayne De Rosario combined to score the MLS team's second goal, tying it at 2-2 at 73 minutes.

Chelsea lost to the MLS All-Stars in 2006 by a final score of 1-0.
