Paul Ifill has been confirmed in the A-League All Stars team to face Manchester United.

The Wellington Phoenix striker flies to Sydney today to link up with the rest of the squad ahead of the game against the English Premier League champions next Saturday.

Ifill said his call-up was unexpected.

"It was a bit of a surprise I'll be honest but I'm really happy, really honoured and privileged to be representing Wellington Phoenix in this game."

The All-Stars side also features All Whites' midfielder Michael McGlinchey.

Manchester United captain Nemanja Vidic has remained at home for at least the start of the tour, suffering from sciatica.
