US womens soccer goalie Hope Solo. Keep quiet and keep your play on the field!

US womens soccer goalie Hope Solo needs to keep quiet and keep her play and
focus on the field

Everyone is entitled to their opinion. US Olympic Soccer goalie Hope Solo
doesn’t like NBC and former US player Brandi Chastain’s comments about defense
and goaltending.

Now whether Brandi Chastain is the best or one of the best players ever can
be argued but you cant argue that she had maybe the defining moment in womens’
soccer history when she kicked the game winning goal in the 1999 World Cup at
the Rose Bowl vs China on a penalty kick.

Chastain ripped off her shirt and with a sports bra on it was one of the most
iconic moments of celebration in womens soccer history.So I think Brandi Chastain knows whats she’s talking about with soccer

Hope Solo meannwhile is an excellent goalie for the US team but she has a big
mouth. A few years ago she made comments that her coach should have benched
Brianna Scurry instead of her. Scurry who played goaltender  on that 1999 team
and was later on a team with Solo. Solo made public comments criticizing her
coaches decision. Now Hope Solo is stirring the pot again criticizing an
announcer Brandi Chastain  who is paid by NBC for her soccer commentary. Whether
Solo agrees with the comments is her business but she should just stick to her
play on the field and help lead the USA team to victory and hopefully a gold

Chastain has taken the high road and not made comments back about Solo execpt
to compliment her goaltending and keeping it on the field.

Solo who celebrated her 31st birthday Monday and has a game
Tuesday isn’t backing down from the comments from what I’ve read. In my opinion
she should just keep her comments to hereself and not put the spotlight on her
and focus on the US team and trying to win a gold medal.

But some people just don’t learn and need to be the story more than being
part of the team. I think Hope Solo even despite her excellent goaltending
skills is one of those people. Win the gold medal Hope Solo and maybe you can
have one of those iconic moments like Brandi Chastain did. Until then just shut
up and play the game and keep your critical comments to your self. She wont
likely and the USA will keep her in goal as they should. They just need to put a
gag around her mouth lol. Best wishes . Talk soon.Bratman
