Former US women's team goalkeeper Hope Solo has announced she is running for president of the US Soccer Federation. She called Sweden, the Americans' quarterfinal opponent, "cowards".
"I know exactly what US Soccer needs to do, I know exactly how to do it, and I possess the fortitude to get it done", Solo said.
She said the business strategy at U.S. Soccer is "profit over progress", and that this can't continue.
Solo announced her candidacy on Twitter and FaceBook with a message about her family's struggles with the money required for young people in the United States to participate in top-level youth soccer programs and questions about the financial dealings of USSF.
"What we have lost in America is belief in our system, in our coaches, in our talent pool, and in the governance of U.S. Soccer". Currently, the only information about her campaign comes from these posts, but they focus more on monetary challenges for youth soccer players than other candidates have. "We now must refocus our goals and come together as a soccer community to bring about the changes we desire". She promised to travel the world during her year away from playing, meeting with foreign soccer teams and associations and developing a better feel for what it takes to be a leader.
For her career, Solo has made 202 total appearances with the national team, with 153 wins and an international-record 102 shutouts. The incumbent, Sunil Gulati, has decided not to run for reelection after the US Men's National Team failed to qualify for the 2018 World Cup by losing to Trinidad and Tobago. Other candidates include former national team players Paul Caligiuri, Eric Wynalda and Kyle Martino as well as USSF vice president Carlos Cordeiro, Boston lawyer Steve Gans, New York lawyer Michael Winograd and Paul LaPointe, Northeast Conference manager of the United Premier Soccer League.
