Hope Solo Proves Just How Sore A Loser She Is

5 months ago 14

Team USA has reigned supreme in women’s Olympic soccer since Athens in 2004. But there will be a new champion this year in Rio, after Sweden knocked out the defending champion on penalties at the quarterfinal stage in Brasilia Friday. Sweden has never won an Olympic medal in women’s football before, although it did lose the bronze medal playoff match to Germany in 2004. But to lose to Sweden on penalties in the quarterfinals of Rio 2016 seemed too difficult to bear for Hope Solo, America’s outspoken goalkeeper. According to CNN, Solo made it clear she was unhappy with what she viewed as her opponents’ defensive style of play and their lack of desire to “play great soccer.” After the match, Solo told reporters, “We played a bunch of cowards. You saw us give everything that we had today. Unfortunately, the better team didn’t win.”
