Wellington Phoenix midfield player Manny Muscat has been added to the A-League All-Stars squad to meet Juventus on August 10.

Fellow Phoenix midfielder Albert Riera was already on the All-Star's roster for their highly-anticipated clash with the Italian Serie A champions.

All Whites defender Storm Roux, from the Central Coast Mariners, was the other originally-selected player with a New Zealand connection.

Muscat, who has also enjoyed A-League success in a fullback role, joined Newcastle Jets goalkeeper Mark Birighitti, Perth Glory midfielder Youssouf Hersi and Central Coast midfielder Nick Montgomery as the final players to be named to the Josep Gomau-coached All-Stars.

"I'm satisfied with the squad that we have to play against Juventus," Gombau said.

"It will be a great experience for all the players and coaches that are involved and I want everybody to enjoy this football party,'' Gombau said.

"The most important part of the event for the players is to allow the fans to enjoy this fantastic game. Juventus is one of the best teams in the world at the moment.

''I want everybody to appreciate the opportunity we have and work hard every single minute they are on the field.

"I want to say thank you to FFA for bringing this match here to Australia and also to the fans for the support to myself and the players who have been selected."
