Hope Solo, great goalkeeper, but no stranger to controversy. Savvy or unsportsmanlike? #goalkeepers #USAvSWE pic.twitter.com/jSHbADDFzL— Christian Benjamin (@Keeperstop) August 12, 2016
It was pretty courageous of her to play 120 minutes with defective gloves. Let’s hope that Manuel Neuer never has a mix-up like that.
