Hope Solo says “I’ve seen Megan Rapinoe almost bully players into kneeling”

In a new interview with Goal.com former star goalie Hope Solo accuses activist soccer star Megan Rapinoe of “bullying” the U.S. women’s soccer team into kneeling for the anthem.

“I think the rhetoric surrounding this team has been both divisive and inclusive. I guess it’s kind of where we are in politics in this day and age,” Solos said.

“I think the kneeling thing can be very divisive. I’ve seen Megan Rapinoe almost bully players into kneeling because she really wants to stand up for something in her particular way,” she added.
