Solo says she is running on four core principles: creating a winning culture in US soccer; equal pay for women; making soccer accessible for all; and stressing transparency in the federation.She won 202 caps for the US during her playing career, recording 153 wins and 102 clean sheets.However, Solo has not played for m.pic5678 her country since being suspended after calling the Sweden players "cowards" after they beat the US in the quarter-finals of the 2016 Olympics.The election to decide the next president will be held in February.
