The Americans still have Hope

With Hope Solo, the United States have Marta’s equalizer
“There’s a rivalry, definitely,” U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo said of Marta. “We know each other; we respect one another; we’ve played on All-Star teams together. Yet we don’t speak a lot – which is the nature of the mystique of a goalkeeper against one of the top goal scorers in the world.”
Marta scored twice against Norway and had a hand in two of Brazil’s three goals against Equatorial Guinea in Wednesday’s final group game in the women’s World Cup.
United States goalkeeper Hope Solo has started the last four games against Brazil, with the U.S. winning each 1-0. The two sides will meet Sunday in the World Cup quarterfinals.
Marta, FIFA’s running five-time player of the year, hasn’t scored yet against Hope Solo in international play; then again, neither have any of her teammates.
