Jermain Defoe to miss MLS all-star game due to injury
Forward had scored 11 of Toronto's 27 goals entering Saturday
Toronto FC star forward Jermaine Defoe will miss the Major League Soccer all-star game next week with an injury.
Defoe, who was replaced on the MLS all-star team by Sporting Kansas City forward Dom Dwyer on Sunday, sat out Toronto's game against the Impact in Montreal on Saturday.
The MLS all-stars will play reigning German Bundesliga Champions Bayern Munich in Portland on Wednesday.
TFC midfielder Michael Bradley, who was voted to the team by fans last month, will represent Toronto at the game.
Defoe was to undergo a scan Sunday for a possible sports hernia.
The 31-year-old England forward had scored 11 of Toronto's 27 goals going into Saturday's game.
Defoe arrived in January in a transfer from England's Tottenham. He is one of Major League Soccer's marquee players with a salary of $6.18 million US this season.
