Swedes are pretty insistent - Hope is the one who is a coward. The Swedish team knew the US was stronger and faster. They used a strategy that played to their defensive strengths. This isn't new, it's part of the game!

Strategy-Shmategy. The fans wanted to see more action. Hope was right.

A lot of people have jumped on Hope Solo. She's already not liked by a lot of soccer fans around the world. Sure, the comments can be seen as unsportsmanlike. But she doesn't bill herself as a diplomatic person. She's competitive and her comments reflect that nature of her personality.

Since when is soccer about anything other than winning?
