Hope Solo plans to appeal the suspension issued to her by U.S. Soccer, the executive director of the US Women’s National Team Players’ Association said on Wednesday.
Hope Solo has been a fixture on the United States women’s soccer team for well over a decade. That, however, will not be the case for the immediate future.
Volatile goalkeeper Hope Solo caused significant controversy with comments that she made after the U.S. women’s soccer team was defeated by Sweden in the Olympic quarterfinals.
Hope Solo caused quite a stir with her recent comments about Sweden playing like “cowards,” and one of her teammates has disavowed the remarks.
Brazilian soccer superstar Neymar was at it again on Saturday.
If anyone was going to speak out after the U.S. lost to Sweden in the quarterfinals at the Olympics on Friday, you knew it would be Hope Solo. And boy, did she ever speak out.
Lionel Messi’s retirement from international soccer did not last long.
Messi confirmed on Friday that he will continue to make himself available for selection to the Argentina national team.
