Ilsinho_Preseason21

As preseason continues, MLSSoccer.com's J Sam Jones compiled his Best XI but not just about on the field play. No, it's "a colleciton of players that, in some form, understand that soccer is a sport for the masses and the masses wish to be entertained by any means necessary."

A pair of Philadelphia Union players made the cut with a third left as an alternative due to a two-players per club limit imposed by the writer. Leading the lead is everyone's favorite 5-star Brazilian in MLS, Ilsinho. 

Not only is Ilsinho at the top of the list, he's the captain of squad. Jones links to his story about how Ilsinho hates everyone because of his ability to just humiliate defenders with his moves but even this week Ilsinho provided content that fans can enjoy.

The next Union player is second-year defensive midfielder Jose "El Brujo" Martinez. After coming to the Union with little known, he made his mark against LAFC that has the City of Brotherly Love cheering him on. There was also this funny moment that took place during the MLS is Back Tournament.
