Sorry if there is a thread JSP could only find the Wag World Cup one.

American keeper Han Solo has been banned for 6 months after calling Sweden cowards for focusing on defense as oppose to attack in the Olympics.

I see very little between her comments and Ronaldos against Iceland at the Euros

United States goalkeeper Hope Solo has been suspended for six months by US Soccer for describing Olympic opponents Sweden as "a bunch of cowards".

The 35-year-old was speaking after Sweden knocked her side out of Rio 2016 in the quarter-finals, winning 5-4 on penalties after a 1-1 draw.

US Soccer president Sunil Gulati said her comments were "unacceptable".

World Cup winner Solo, writing on her Facebook page, said she was "saddened" by the decision.

"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," she added.

Solo will not be eligible for selection until February.

In January 2015, she was suspended for 30 days following an incident during a training camp.

Media reports claimed she was in the car when husband Jerramy Stevens was arrested on suspicion of driving under the influence.

Sweden lost 2-1 to Germany in the Olympic final.


I think she's had run ins with the USA FA before she's a bit of a nutter and American's have a very different towards attitude of their players in sports compared to Europe they tend to have a lot more respect for opponents.

The Portugese FA are hardly going to ban Ronaldo for 6 months in the middle of the Euros over what he said and both have a point sitting deep and defending with everyone behind the ball is a cowards way to play football but it's effective and when you say it after a loss or a draw it just comes across as bitter.
