Nearly seven years after making her U.S. Women’s National Team debut, Long Island’s Crystal Dunn played in her 100th game for the senior team.
As has been the case during the previous 99 games in which the Rockville Centre-native has worn the red, white and blue, Dunn’s 100th cap came in a 4-0 U.S. win over Mexico on Friday, February 7. The victory allowed the U.S. to qualify for the 2020 Olympics this summer in Tokyo, Japan.
“So honored to reach 100 caps!!!” Dunn wrote on her Twitter page. “It is an absolute honor to represent this team. I am so thankful for everyone who has supported me along the way. The road hasn’t been easy, but it has been totally worth it.”
Since 2015, Dunn has been a fixture on the U.S. roster. In 2016 she was a member of the squad that qualified for the Summer Olympics in Brazil. Three years later she was a key cog in the U.S. defensive corp as the team won its second consecutive World Cup championship and fourth overall.
