Just like Kasey: Hope Solo winding career down in Seattle

hopesoloreignSEATTLE, Wash.–-In an interview featured on EqualizerSoccer.com new Seattle Reign FC goalkeeper Hope Solo showed her awareness of similarities between her final years as a pro and Kasey Keller’s.

“That’s funny. Yep, Kasey and I, coming back home to retire, right? As long as we get a championship while we’re at it, then I’ll be one happy camper. I want to bring the city a championship, and I want to bring notoriety to the game, and I want to give back to the city and show them the beautiful game. Most of the time, they get to see that high level of play on TV — during the World Cups, during the Olympics — and now, we’re bringing it here to the city. Of course, I played for the Seattle Sounders (Women), but this is a different level. It’s not the same. This is the best of the best players. So I think it’s going to be fun for the city to finally see.”
