  • What They're Saying

    "From the moment Pia stepped in, she changed the entire dynamic of this team. A completely different philosophy, she is one of the more laid-back coaches I've ever had. A lot of American coaches want to be involved in every pass, in every play. She likes to sit back, she says, 'You guys are creative, you are soccer players', she wants us to think and read the game for ourselves. Of course we need her expertise, her input and she shows that when she brings a change of tactics but every player likes to have a bit of freedom on the field. It brings the joy back to us, back to the time when we were little kids and just played for the hell of it."

    -- U.S. goalie Hope Solo on her coach, Swede Pia Sundhage.
