Brandi Chastain on Hope Solo Tweets: Just Doing My Job!

by at . Comments

Brandi Chastain has responded to Hope Solo's Twitter criticism of her recent commentary for ESPN, defending her comments as part of the job.

Chastain, who rose to fame during Team USA's 1999 World Cup win, pissed off Hope with her critique of America's performance at the Olympics.

Specifically, Chastain said defender Buehler actually needs to improve on her defense, a comment she stands by as both objective and honest.

Chastain said in a statement: "My only comment is I am in London to cover women's soccer for NBC in an honest and objective fashion, and that is what I have done, and will continue to do for the rest of the tournament."

Solo, who turned 31 yesterday, said "it's too bad we can't have commentators who know more about the game" and told Brandi to "lay off commentating about defending and goalkeeping until you get more educated."

If Solo's comments have been any distraction to the team, you wouldn't know it. They're on the verge of beating North Korea to improve to 3-0.
