Viral See Hope Solo's Tearful, Expletive-Laden Rant as She Gets 6-Month Suspension
(WARNING: Contains profanity)
Hope Solo was suspended by U.S. Soccer for six months and had her contract terminated last week after the star goalkeeper controversially called the Swedish national team “cowards” following their quarterfinal win over the USWNT at the Rio Olympics.
A camera crew captured Solo's expletive-laden, tearful reaction when she found out about the harsh punishment from USWNT head coach Jill Ellis and Dan Flynn of U.S. Soccer.
"Six months suspension," Solo says as she hugs her husband, former NFL player Jerramy Stevens. "No pay. Terminated contract. Effective immediately."
"17 f***ing years and it's over!"
She was being filmed for a Fullscreen docu-series, “Keeping Score,” which has been following her and other members of the U.S. women’s national team.
Solo, 35, has 202 appearances and 153 wins with the U.S. in her international career. This suspension likely signals the end of her time with the USWNT.
