Hope Solo to Join beIN SPORTS as Co-host of New Show “Weekend Winners” Sports
Hope Solo is fearless in front of the goal and now steps up to show the world her skills in front of the camera talking soccer. And, proving brains can come without arrogance, Solo talks a good game.
Hope Solo is, without doubt, the greatest goalkeeper in the history of the women’s game and a true legend of the U.S. sport, a player who redefined her position.
Now, with the same fierceness Solo approached protecting our country from being scored on, she will be assessing the on-field action for beIN SPORTS. Solo is now the newest addition to the network’s team of on-air personalities.
Hope Solo has been missing from the television screens of soccer for nearly three years — a former fixture in front of the net, her job was to prevent opponents from scoring on the U.S. Womens National Team. Unquestionably, Solo is one of the best goalkeepers in women’s soccer and holds the national team record for longest undefeated streak as a goalkeeper with 55 games from March 7,
A serious and dedicated soccer analyst and commentator, Solo earned her television experience covering the 2019 FIFA Women’s World Cup.
