Hope Solo May Return to U.S. Women’s Soccer Team in NJ

Four months after having wrist surgery, Hope Solo seemingly is ready to return to the starting lineup for the United States women’s soccer team.

While Tom Sermanni isn’t ready to say whether Solo will start Thursday against South Korea at Red Bull Arena in Harrison, N.J., the U.S. coach said Tuesday  that just having his goaltender back on the field is a plus for his team.

It showed last weekend, when Solo played for the first time since her surgery.

Taking over in the second half of a 4-1 win over South Korea at Foxborough, Mass., on Saturday night, the 31-year-old and two-time Olympic gold medalist returned in style after her layoff.  With the U.S. leading 2-1, Solo dove to her right and pushed a shot by Ji Soyun wide of the net.
