Hope Solo was suspended from the U.S. Women’s National Team shortly after the Olympics in Rio because of comments she made towards the Sweedish national team.
Solo was suspended for six months from the National team and her contract was terminated on August 24th for calling Sweden “cowards” after the quarterfinal loss on penalties for the USWNT.
On Tuesday, Fullscreen a company doing a documentary on Solo and other members of the national team, released a video as they were in the room when USWNT head coach Jill Ellis and Dan Flynn of U.S. Soccer told Solo of her suspension. Solo’s husband Jeremy Stevens was there as well to console the goalkeeper as she learned her career might be over.
“Six month suspension no pay, terminated contract effective immediately,” Solo said. “17 f***ing years and it’s over!”
The full video for “Keeping Score” will be released soon.
