Solo drew fire for comments that flew in the face of the ideals of Olympic competition.
“We played a creative game. We had many opportunities on goal,” Solo said. “We showed a lot of heart. We came back from a goal down. I’m very proud of this team. We played a bunch of cowards. The best team did not win today. I strongly, firmly believe that.”
Still, Morgan understands that teammates cover for one another, no matter what.
“I feel like everything is fair game when you play a team sport,” Morgan said. “You have to support each other. Sometimes you have to cover for each other. That’s just part of playing a team sport.”
