Representing the U.S. on the Women’s National Soccer team may no longer be in the cards for Hope Solo.

The star goalkeeper has been slapped with a six-month suspension for calling the Swedes quote “a bunch of cowards” at the Rio Olympics.

She made the controversial remarks after Sweden beat the U.S. in a shootout, dashing the team’s hopes for a chance to win a fourth straight Olympic title.

The U.S. Soccer Federation also terminated Solo’s contract calling her comments unacceptable.

This is the second time Solo has been suspended by U.S. Soccer.

In January 2015, the 35-year-old was suspended for 30 days after her husband, former NFL player Jerramy Stevens was pulled over on suspicion of driving under the influence. Solo was a passenger in the van.

She also made headlines over a domestic violence case that was dismissed after she pleaded not guilty to hitting her sister and nephew during a dispute at her home.

On Twitter, Solo said she was saddened by the Federation’s decision to terminate her contract.
