HOPE SOLO

SOCCER GOALKEEPER // AMERICAN HERO

INTERVIEWED BY

JOANNE CANTWELL

Hope Solo is one of the biggest names in soccer having represented the United States on 202 occasions and in that time winning a World Cup and two Olympic gold medals over the course of a sixteen-year international career.  Of those 202 games, she started in 190, won 153 and kept 102 clean sheets.

Off the pitch, she is well known for her outspoken efforts to secure better pay from US Soccer for the US women’s team.  She believes that was the real reason for a six-month suspension that has threatened to end her international career and will speak about this and her on-field successes at Croke Park.
