Hope Solo, the greatest women's keeper
July 2nd, 2012 12:20AM

TAGS:  video, women's national team


[VIDEO PICK] If you have any doubt about credentials of Hope Solo as the greatest women's goalie in the world, check out the video of her save and coverup in Saturday's USA-Canada game in Sandy, Utah.  The play began when Canada star Christine Sinclair unleashed a shot from 20 yards out that deflected off the sliding Amy LePeilbet, causing the ball to change direction and wrong-foot Solo. But the keeper shifted her weight and sprawled out to her left to come up with a one-handed diving save. With the ball still loose along the goal line, Solo was able to cover it up next to the left post and hold off charging Kaylan Kyle, who was ready to pounce on the rebound.

    Fantastic save and she is the best. But it looks like the ball slipped over the line at the end...
