FROM U.S. SOCCER - CHICAGO (Jan. 21, 2015) – U.S. Soccer has suspended goalkeeper Hope Solo from the U.S. Women's National Team for 30 days. The suspension is effective immediately.

The suspension stems from an incident that occurred during the current WNT training camp being held in Carson, California.

As a result of the suspension, Solo has been released from training camp and will miss the USA's matches in Europe on Feb. 8 in France and Feb. 13 in England.

“During our current National Team camp, Hope made a poor decision that has resulted in a negative impact on U.S. Soccer and her teammates,” said U.S. Women's National Team head coach Jill Ellis. “We feel at this time it is best for her to step away from the team.”

Solo will be eligible for reinstatement to the team after the 30-day suspension, pending review and approval by U.S. Soccer and Ellis.
