Solo making a save
Solo didn't mince words when asked about the game; she said t “I think we played a bunch of cowards” and “the best team did not win.” The sides drew 1-1 and the US lost on penalties.
Solo is known for her 'take-no-prisoners' attitude
Solo will be suspended for six months, and her national contract has been terminated which means she may loose out on money. Solo will only miss two games in 2016 and will be eligible to return in 2017. She will be able to play for her regular club during the suspension.
The Player's Union is seeking for the decision to be overturned, citing a violation of first amendment rights, but Solo is taking the punishment gracefully. Said Solo; "“I think it’s best for me to take a break, decompress from the stress of the last several months, and come back mentally and physically ready to positively contribute to the team.”What do YOU think about this? Should Hope Solo be suspended? Are they terminating her contract because this was probably her last Olympics? Is this a violation of her first amendment rights?
