MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Hope Solo will not be disciplined by the U.S. women’s soccer team for her Twitter rant against NBC analyst and former player Brandi Chastain.
The goalkeeper met with coach Pia Sundhage and the team’s captains Sunday. They discussed the desire to keep “a bubble” around the team during the Olympics. The coach also discussed the team’s image with fans.
Solo took to Twitter on Saturday to criticize Chastain for comments made during the broadcast of the Americans’ 3-0 win over Colombia. She told Chastain to “get more educated” and that “the game has changed from a decade ago.”
Chastain refused to be drawn into the fray. She said: “I’m here to do my job, which is to be an honest and objective journalist at the Olympics, nothing more than that.”
