The Foxtel A-League All Stars have arrived in camp as they prepare to take on Manchester United in a week-s time.
The final announcement of the squad was made on Friday and the players joined coach Ange Postecoglou as they look to devise a master plan to match it with some of the world-s best.
“For me their the biggest club in the world and for the A-League to get them over to play against us is something pretty special,” said Wellington Phoenix strike Paul Ifill.
Recently returning from the U-20 World Cup, Connor Chapman has been rewarded with a rare opportunity in the coming week.
“Being at a young age versing Man United, not many players get to verse Man United in their career,” said Chapman.
“It will be an absolute honour to be on the same field as players like (Robin) Van Persie and players like that.”
