Hope solo alienated many people of Brazil through posing with anti-mosquito gear while the country is suffering from Zika Virus. US goalkeeper was taunted with cries by Zika at every goal kick by Brazilian fans. US drew with Colombia in the final game of group.
Solo claimed that it was necessary to change her gloves. This is why Lisa Dahlkvist was forced to wait to take the spot kick. But it took too much time and Sweden scored goal and US got out from the tournament.
Hope solo said that she is proud of this team. She also said that they played with a bunch of cowards. She also said that the best team is not the winner today. They didn’t want to play open, they didn’t want to pass. It was physical, combative game.
