Former USA goalkeeper Hope Solo has announced she is running for president of the US Soccer Federation.

The 36-year-old earned 202 caps for her country and won the 2015 Women’s World Cup plus two Olympic gold medals during her 17-year international career.

She has not played for the national side since the Rio Olympics, after receiving a six-month ban for calling rivals Sweden “a bunch of cowards”.
