CHESTER, Pa., July 25 (UPI) -- Eddie Johnson scored in stoppage time Wednesday, capping a comeback that handed the MLS All-Stars a 3-2 decision over European champion Chelsea.

Trailing 2-1 in the 73rd minute, the MLS netted the equalizer when Chris Pontius scored inside the near post off an assist from D.C. United teammate Dwayne De Rosario.

The MLS won it in the 91st minute when Johnson, of the Seattle Sounders, blasted a shot that deflected off Chelsea defender David Luiz and past goalkeeper Ross Turnbull into the net.

San Jose's Chris Wondolowski also scored for the MLS, which won an all-star game against a European opponent for the first time since 2008.

John Terry and Frank Lampard scored for Chelsea.
