When it comes to soccer, it is fair to say that the men's side of the sport gets talked about much more than the women's game and they are actually poles apart when it comes to support and the money that is also involved. However, that does not mean that the women's game does not have some superstars to be proud of, with some of these talented players also able to make some extra money from some modelling gigs.
American goalkeeper Hope Solo is one of the hottest women in soccer and she has enjoyed a long and successful career in the game, becoming one of the biggest and best names in women's soccer. As well as being very beautiful, Hope is also one of the best goalkeepers in the game, so much so that she could probably rival some of the men between the sticks.
Well, Hope Solo is currently in Brazil, where Team USA are competing at the Rio 2016 Olympics and they got off to the perfect start in their opening group game yesterday (August 3). USA enjoyed a comfortable 2-0 victory over New Zealand, which gave Hope Solo yet another clean sheet to be proud of, as the team bid for a medal at this year's tournament.
Unfortunately though, as always seems to be the case with soccer these days, the game was not without controversy, as the crowed booed and jeered Hope Solo, even making chants towards her about the Zika virus. Ever the professional though, Hope took the chants on the chin and even praised the crowd for having fun and enjoying the game. Fair play to you Hope.
Team USA are next in action on Saturday, August 6, where they take on France.
