I had a chance to watch Hope Solo’s interview on Swedish television. She explained her coward comments very well. U.S Soccer overreacted to her comments by termination, of her contract, plus a 6-month suspension. In the past, Solo has been outspoken about many issues. During the interview, she has said it is her greatest strength and weakness. Solo hinted that she could play in Europe and maybe in Sweden. Solo had right shoulder replacement surgery and it could be a while before she plays again. As for returning to the U.S Women National Team when her suspension is done in February. That could happen, and as far fighting for equal pay Solo will be a part of that.
The USWNT Collective Bargaining Agreement expires on December 31 and they have meetings, tomorrow and November 1st to get an agreement done.
