MLS announced its Best XI on Tuesday and made one slightly surprising move in selecting the team.

Landon Donovan was listed as a forward on the ballot, but was listed as a midfielder on the Best XI announced by the league, a change which allowed for him, Edson Buddle and Chris Wondolowski to all make the team. It is also a change SBI made when selecting its own Best XI.

Here is the squad:

GK- Donovan Ricketts,D- Jamison Olave,D- Omar Gonzalez,D- Nat Borchers,M- David Ferreira,M- Dwayne DeRosario,M- Sebastien LeToux,M- Javier Morales,M- Landon Donovan,F- Edson Buddle,F- Chris Wondolowski

This Best XI had nine of the 11 players on the SBI Best XI, with Ricketts and Borchers edging out SBI selections Nick Rimando and Heath Pearce.

What do you think of the Best XI? Which player would you add to the list?
