The US shredded its opponents in CONCACAF women's soccer Olympic qualifiers this week—14-0 over the Dominicans, 13-0 over Guatemala, and 4-0 over Mexico—but Brandi Chastain, the lady who's famous for this, was not impressed. She called the games for Universal Sports Network (it's not the one formerly known as Versus; it's that other one) and critiqued the women for not working on their fundamentals or something. In Olympic qualifiers. The first two of which they won 27-0. And Solo did not dig it.
