CHICAGO -- The U.S. women's soccer team has added two more stops to its post-Olympic victory tour.

The Americans will play exhibitions against Ireland on Nov. 28 in Portland and Dec. 1 in Glendale, Ariz. The U.S. is 8-0-0 against Ireland.

The Americans are 3-0 so far on tour, with two victories over Australia and one against Costa Rica. They face two-time World Cup champion Germany on Oct. 20 in Bridgeview, Ill., with another game three days later in East Hartford, Conn.

The U.S. women won their third straight Olympic title in London, beating Japan 2-1 in a rematch of last year's World Cup final.
