PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) -- Olympians Christine Sinclair, Christina LeBlanc and Rachel Buehler have joined the Portland Thorns during a break from national team duty.

Sinclair and LeBlanc both recently wrapped up Canada's second-place finish in the Cyprus Cup. Buehler was on the U.S. team that won the Algarve Cup earlier this month in Portugal.

Teammate Alex Morgan, who scored both goals in the 2-0 Algarve final against Germany, is to join the Thorns next week. The Thorns open the season April 13.
