TORONTO - Toronto FC's Michael Bradley and Jermain Defoe hold spots in the top 10 of Major League Soccer's list of most popular jerseys.

Bradley ranks third while Defoe is seventh on the list topped by U.S. striker Clint Dempsey of Seattle.

The rankings are based on retail sales at MLSgear.com and MLSGearCanada.ca since the beginning of the 2014 MLS season.

Landon Donovan, the L.A. Galaxy star left off the U.S. World Cup roster, is No. 2. Thierry Henry of New York is fourth followed by Red Bulls teammate Tim Cahill and Robbie Keane of the Galaxy.

After Defoe, Los Angeles defender Omar Gonzalez is eighth with Graham Zusi of Sporting Kansas City ninth and Seattle's DeAndre Yedlin 10th.

Kyle Beckerman of Real Salt Lake is 11th in sales, followed by Matt Besler of Sporting Kansas City, Chris Wondolowski of the San Jose Earthquakes, Maurice Edu of the Philadelphia Union and Diego Fagundez of the New England Revolution.

Nine of the top 15 players identified by MLS will compete in the FIFA World Cup.
