First Published Aug 30 2012 01:34 pm • Last Updated Aug 30 2012 01:34 pm

The U.S. women’s soccer team is going to savor its gold medal from the London Olympics a little longer.

The Americans said Thursday they will play two exhibitions against Germany in October as part of their post-Olympic "victory tour." The first game will be Oct. 20 in Bridgeview, Ill., with the second game three days later in East Hartford, Conn. The U.S. is 17-4-4 against the two-time World Cup champions, winning their last three meetings.

The Americans begin their tour Saturday against Costa Rica in Rochester, N.Y., Abby Wambach’s hometown. They then host Australia on Sept. 16 in Carson, Calif., and Sept. 19 in Commerce City, Colo.

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.
