agreed. they played well their first two games & even though Sweden hasn't looked good in group play, I wouldn't take them lightly. Then there's the possible match-up with Brazil in the semis. Right now I see a Brazil vs. Canada final.

3-0 Canada Cool
Germany had a couple chances to score a second goal at the end but good saves by Canada's goalkeeper. As someone who is rooting for Canada those last few mins were stressful.

Germany hasn't looked their best in these Olympics. If Canada can get by France, I think they'll be able to get by Germany in the semis. France has played better than Germany.

Ugh. While the US got the outcome that their play deserved, I hate it when the style of play that Sweden used is rewarded. Teams that load up on defense like that are boring as hell to watch. I hate that in hockey and I hate it in soccer.

Hope makes it easier to see them lose Laughing
Maybe if she made some saves in pks the better team would have won.

Assuming Brazil gets past Australia, they should have an easy time vs. Sweden and get into the gold medal game.

Hope-LESS. DeClasse. So dominate, if you can--if you CAN'T or won't, you risk losing.

Solo is an embarrassment. As is US Soccer's looking the other way while she stalls the trial of her domestic violence prosecution with a seemingly endless series of appeals.

If she was a NFL player, she would have been suspended the past two years.

Other than that meme took on a life of itself outside of what really happened. McKayla never said nor did anything to warrant that interpretation of the face she made. Solo's comments were just classless garbage.

While I agree that the style of play that Sweden chose to go with is terrible as it is boring as hell to watch, and I guess in a way could be labeled "cowardly", the Americans have no one to blame for the loss but themselves. Not to mention before throwing shade on another team, perhaps she should remember that the Americans scored the equalizer while a Swedish player was laying on the ground injured.

And that Sweden scored a perfectly good goal in extra time that would've won the game anyway, disallowed for a supposed offside that wasn't even close. If 'parking the bus' in front of your own goal, hoping to snatch the occasional chance on the break, is your best chance of winning, then that's what the coach has to set their team up to do.

Solo really is a detestable human being.

Brazil-Australia heading into extra time right now, if anyone wants to see the home nation go through the same agony the US went through earlier.

That Brazil-Australia match last night was fantastic. So many chances for Brazil(19 corner kicks + 10 shots on goal) & they just couldn't score. Then the PKs!!! Marta's shot gets blocked & I'm thinking it's over, then Barbara saves Brazil! Brazil should easily take out Sweden & head to the gold medal match.

Hope Solo is proof that being a world class athlete doesn't actually lend any sense of class to the person.

She's just a sore loser.

As for the comments about Sweden being cowardly for the style of play they used in the game, it shows a stunning lack of awareness on her part.

Sweden's job is not to play the style of game the US wants. Their job was to beat the US. Mission accomplished. I'd rather be boring and win, than exciting and lose.

You keep saying things like this. Weren't the quarter-finals an illustration that nothing's coming easily in this tournament?

USA lost to a bad Sweden team. They played terrible soccer. If they had played up to their full potential they would have won. Brazil is the same. On paper, Brazil should easily win. The Swedish defensive isn't anything close to what Australia's is, so Brazil should be able to capitalize on this.

Canadian women just beat Brazil in the Bronze medal game, 2-1.

Were tenth ranked in the world coming into these games.

Really good result for Canada.

Solo is suspended six months.


Quote:
"I could not be the player I am without being the person I am, even when I haven’t made the best choices or said the right things. My entire career, I have only wanted the best for this team, for the players and the women’s game and I will continue to pursue these causes with the same unrelenting passion with which I play the game."




Interesting approach.

Quote:
Rich Nichols, the executive director of the players’ union, called the sanctions by U.S. Soccer “excessive, unprecedented, disproportionate and a violation of Ms. Solo’s First Amendment rights,” in a statement to Sports Illustrated. He vowed to appeal the punishment.


Quote:
“We also question whether this action would have ever been taken against a male player or coach, who, in the heated moments after a frustrating defeat questioned the tactics of the opposing team,” Nichols said in the statement.

So she's suspended for six months & her contract is terminated? So does she negotiate a new contract in six months?

So they ignore her prosecution for domestic violence but suspend her for mouthing off about the Swedish team?

Good to see US Soccer has its priorities in order. Rolling Eyes

This wasn't just about the Sweden thing. That was the straw that broke the camel's back. This is about the mouth, and about the DV, and about everything else she's ever done to make herself and US Soccer look bad.

So it's just convenient timing, evidently.

A year ago it didn't matter to them in the slightest. They blew it off with Jill Ellis saying about the domestic violence on the eve of the World Cup "“I’ll be honest, we’ve moved on. She’s been a fantastic player and teammate. None of that has even resonated with us, and I’m sure many of the players aren’t aware of it.”

And they wrote a long letter full of legalese and excuses to a Senator on why they were doing nothing.

But hey, they needed her for the World Cup. This year they needed her for the Olympics.

Her misfortune is that they don't need her now, no big competitions. And she let through a couple goals and they lost at the Olympics, so her luster is diminished. How nice of her to provide them a trivial excuse now and a chance to cover their ass by finally doing what they should have done a long time ago.

US Soccer's reaction from the beginning has been pathetic.

It's like an NFL team allowing a star player to play in a Super Bowl after beating up his wife and then suspending him from Spring drills for criticizing the instant replay official and pretending that makes it OK.

I think it's time US Soccer starts grooming new GKs in time for the 2019 WWC. Just dump Solo from the national team permanently & just let her play in the NWSL.

Is the USNT for soccer supported by the US Government? If not, how exactly were her 1st Amendment rights violated? The 1st Amendment doesn't give people the right to be jackasses without consequences. All it means is that the Government can't be the administrator of those consequences (with quite a few exceptions where they can be).
