Defender Crystal Dunn has been added to the U.S. women's national team roster for the team's FIFA World Cup victory tour upcoming games against Haiti on Sept. 17 in Detroit and Sept. 20 in Birmingham, Alabama, U.S. Soccer announced

Dunn is the NWSL leading scorer with 15 goals in 20 games. Six of her goals were game-winners for the Washington Spirit. She was initially on the U.S. women's national team's training camp from CONCACAF qualifying through the spring friendlies. A knee injury ultimately led to coach Jill Ellis' decision to omit Dunn from the roster.

All 23 players from the Women's World Cup championship team will play next Thursday. Forward Christen Press will miss not play in Birmingham due to a family commitment.

The USWNT won its first two victory tour matches against Costa Rica on Aug. 16 (8–0) and Aug. 19 (7–2).
