Hope Solo Vindicated

SoloAfter idiot coach Greg Ryan benched Hope Solo after a perfect run to the finals against Brazil, the US was destroyed by Brazil in last year’s World Cup, 4-0. She was then thrown off the team for saying afterwards that she would’ve saved the goals that replacement Briana Scurry gave up.

Well apparently that was correct. Posting a clean sheet today, Solo carried the US team to victory in the gold medal match over Brazil, 1-0. Carli Lloyd’s goal in overtime gave the Americans the surprising victory over the heavily-favored Brazilians.

Hopefully (no pun intended) people, and her teammates especially, will shut up about what happened last year and admit that she was and is the better keeper for this team.

    Yeah, I still can’t believe that. It made me mad that Solo got shited on so badly for saying something that was 100% true.
