Even if she is usually the hero, Hope Solo was zero last night against Colombia, at the Olympics.
USWNT goalkeeper Hope Solo gave up a bad early goal to the Colombians by making an « Arconada » after a free kick. « Arconada » is the name of the Spanish goalkeeper who made first this mistake, during the Euro Cup 1984 in France.
The usually indomitable Solo let the ball slip through her legs and into the net.
Watch this huge error:
Fortunately, USWNT survived Hope Solo errors to secure top spot in Olympic Group G following an unexpected 2-2 draw with Colombia in Manaus.
