The U.S. women's team received scathing criticism for celebrating and scoring as much as they did in the victory over Thailand.
The predetermined nature of the celebrations was what bothered Solo the most. She also now holds the USA record for most career clean sheets (102), most appearances for a goalkeeper (202), most starts (190), most wins (154) and longest undefeated streak (55 games). And hell, check out the badass ads that folks are making with respect to women's soccer.
Solo, who helped U.S. win two Olympic Gold Medals and one World Cup prior to her firing from the team in 2016, is among those who accuse US of poor sportsmanship.
Former U.S. global Taylor Twellman, now a TV analyst, hit out at the players for their celebrations against beleaguered opponents.
However, as much as she is celebrated for her heroics with her national team, her career has been lined with controversy.

On Wednesday, Rapinoe joined several of her USWNT teammates in responding to the criticism. "I mean you can't really fault that", she added. "She relies heavily on her assistant coaches".

'This is your dream of playing and then scoring in a World Cup. Make no mistake, the US are the favourites to win a fourth World Cup for a reason, they have the best squad, more depth, more options and in Alex Morgan, arguably the best player at the tournament.
For the United States, the World Cup comes at a time that the team has its own, albeit completely different, battle back home.
But clearly there remains some tension with Ellis and the USWNT after Solo's contract were terminated. This year, however, she entered the World Cup in a 302-minute drought, her longest in four years. Solo hit out publicly after the USWNT's 4-0 loss and was alienated by her teammates.
In 2012, her husband Jerramy Stevens was involved in an investigation of assault following an altercation that left Solo injured the day before they were to Wednesday.

In 2015, the judge dismissed the charges against Solo based on a lack of cooperation from both alleged victims. He was charged with DUI and served three days in jail.
