(Manchester, England)  —  American women’s soccer goalie Hope Solo will not be disciplined after firing off a round of tweets over the weekend directed at former U.S. star Brandi Chastain.  Solo was upset at Chastian’s critical comments of the U.S. defense as a commentator during NBC’s broadcast of the team’s 3-nil win over Colombia.  Solo tweeted that Chastain should lay off commentating about defending until she becomes more educated and that the game has changed from a decade ago.  Chastain famously scored the winning penalty-kick goal as the U.S. won the World Cup in 1999.  The U.S. plays North Korea on Tuesday to decide matchups for the quarterfinals.
