Ireland captain Robbie Keane joined former French international Thierry Henry in being selected for Major League Soccer's (MLS) Best XI for the 2012 season.
Keane, who plays alongside David Beckham for L.A Galaxy, was named in the 11-man team for the first time while New York Red Bulls striker Henry earned his second selection.
Henry was also among three players shortlisted for the MLS Most Valuable Player award, to be announced on Thursday.
