All Whites defender Storm Roux will play alongside Alessandro Del Piero in the A-League All Stars squad against Juventus in August.

After a strong 2013/14 season, Roux received his first call-up to the All Stars squad, joining Central Coast team-mate Josh Rose, Sydney FC duo Sasa Ognenovski and Ali Abbas, and Western Sydney Wanderers' Matthew Spiranovic and Tomi Juric.

The first group of players, which were voted on by fans, were nominated to join Coach Josep Gombau's squad for the match against Italian Serie A champions Juventus at ANZ Stadium on August 10.

Rose earns his second selection after he lined up in the inaugural match against Manchester United last year.

Central defender Ognenovski had helped to sure up the Sky Blues' defence following his arrival at the club in February this year while teammate Ali Abbas played every minute of every game last season and was named the 2013/14 Sydney FC Players' Player of the Year.

Spiranovic started in all three of the Socceroos' matches at the World Cup, his selection for the national team coming thanks to a standout season for the red and black.

Juric played for the Socceroos in last year's East Asian Cup.
