Expanding on the alleged incident on Friday, Solo told the Guardian that she had to compose herself immediately afterwards to concentrate on making her speech and giving the presentation to Wambach.

In 2004, he landed in hot water after saying women's soccer should use sex appeal as a way to grow the game. I've seen it amongst players in the locker room. "And I wish more female athletes would speak out about their own experiences".
Solo joined the US women's national team in 2000 but has not played for the nation since the 2016 Olympics in Rio.

In response to that, Lipinsky said, "To suggest that if the allegations are true they don't amount to much is really disturbing". Several senior Republicans called on Moore to quit the race after The Washington Post reported allegations of sexual misconduct.
