Biography

Hope SOLO

Goalkeeper Hope Solo has been a pillar of the USWNT (United States Women’s National Team) for many years, helping them win back-to-back golds at Beijing 2008 and London 2012.

Donning the gloves

Introduced to football by her father, Hope Solo was a prolific goalscorer during her teenage years in Richland, Washington State, scoring 109 goals for her high school team between 1996 and 1999 and helping them win three straight regional titles in the process.

It was not until she started playing for the Huskies, the University of Washington’s team, that she switched to goalkeeping. Solo quickly showed that she belonged in the position, racking up a club record 325 saves and 18 clean sheets during her collegiate career.

Crossing the Pond

Solo made her move into professional football in 2003 with Philadelphia Charge in the WUSA league, which would suspend its operations that same year. The following year saw the keeper head to Europe to sign for Swedish club Gothenburg before then joining French powerhouses Olympique Lyonnais in 2005.
