2012 Olympics: Hope Solo Destroys Brandi Chastain on Twitter after USA’s Victory vs. Colombia

| by Alex Groberman

After a not-so-impressive opening to the 2012 London Olympics, the U.S. women’s soccer team clearly wanted to make a statement in their second game.

Mission accomplished.

Behind goals from Megan Rapinoe, Abby Wambach and Carli Lloyd, the U.S. team demolished Colombia in a 3-0 rout on Saturday – but that's not the story of the day. No, the story of the day, as usual, comes to us via goalkeeper Hope Solo. (Who didn’t really have to do much in Saturday’s win, so maybe all this pent up aggression is sort of understandable.)

Here is what she tweeted out shortly after the game:

What brought on that reaction? It’s tough to say. Chastain’s commentary during the outing was pretty standard stuff, and she didn’t seem to bash the U.S. team at any point. (She’s an unapologetic homer, really.)

We’ll find out what the beef is soon enough, though.
