Amy Rodriguez is part of a class of four Philadelphia Independence players who made the WPS All-Star teams.

Rodriguez will come off the bench for Team Marta, which features defender Allison Falk in the starting lineup. Midfielder Lori Lindsey will start for Team Abby.

Independence midfielder Caroline Seger is a member of Team Marta but her injury will keep her off the field.
