After heading to Rio for the 2016 Olympic Games, the U.S. Women’s Soccer Team has been under controversy for the use of inappropriate language towards the Sweden Women’s Soccer Team. U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo, has been on punishment and suspension for six months after losing penalties following a closely fought 1-1 tie at the Rio tournament.

The suspension comes from after Solo described Sweden playing like “a bunch of cowards” after the match between the two countries.  The United States Soccer Federation suspending Solo’s contract may also come off as U.S. Soccer being excessive, failing to do so in her past.

“I am really disappointed, to be honest. That’s not our team, that’s not what this team has always been, that’s not what this team will be in the future,” stated U.S. teammate Megan Rapinoe in an interview with NBC Sports. Solo has also declined to end her season with the National Women’s Soccer League’s Seattle Reign.
