CONCACAF Women's Championship

Johnston replaces Dunn on USWNT qualifying roster

Julie Johnston has replaced Crystal Dunn on the United States women’s national team roster for the CONCACAF Women’s Championship.

An MRI revealed Dunn has a mild MCL sprain in her right knee, according to U.S. Soccer, and will be out 2-4 weeks.

Johnston has been training with the United States since camp began in Kansas City, Kan., on Oct. 6. She has four caps for the United States.

“It’s an unfortunate situation and we definitely feel for Crystal, but we are confident that Julie can come in and contribute to our qualifying campaign,” U.S. coach Jill Ellis said. “She’s a versatile player, she’s been training well and she’s ready to go.”

Dunn tweeted her disappointment on Tuesday.

The U.S. opens the tournament, which doubles as World Cup qualifying, on Wednesday against Trinidad & Tobago at Sporting Park in Kansas City. (8:30 p.m. ET on FOX Sports 2).
