August 25 , 2016
The US Soccer has suspended Hope Solo for six months, the United States goalkeeper for calling Sweden a bunch of cowards. She made the comment after the US team was knocked down by Sweden out of Rio in 2016 in the quarter-finals. Her comment was called 'unacceptable' by the US soccer president Sunil Gulati. Later Solo wrote on her Facebook page that she was saddened by the decision.
