BRASILIA, Brazil -- Hope Solo didnt hold back in her criticism of the Swedish team that eliminated the United States from the Olympic womens soccer tournament in a penalty shootout Friday. Tracy Mcgrady Jersey .I thought that we played a courageous game, Solo said. I thought that we had many opportunities on goal. I think we showed a lot of heart. We came back from a goal down; Im very proud of this team.I also think we played a bunch of cowards. But, you know, the best team did not win today; I strongly, firmly believe that. I think you saw Americas heart. You saw us give everything that we had today. Unfortunately the better team didnt win.As expected, the Swedish team that had finished third in its group during the tournaments initial phase adopted a defensive strategy against the United States, which had won its group.The United States dominated possession and finished with 27 shots, but Sweden scored on a counterattack in regulation -- one of only two shots on goal it had in the game.After playing to a 1-1 stalemate over 120 minutes, Sweden edged the U.S. 4-3 in the shootout.Asked to elaborate on what she meant by cowards, Solo referenced Pia Sundhage, the Swedish coach who formerly coached the United States and won two Olympic gold medals.Sweden dropped off, didnt want to open play, Solo said. They didnt want to pass the ball around. They didnt want to play great soccer, entertaining soccer. It was a combative game, a physical game. Exactly what they wanted and exactly what their game plan was. They dropped into a 50. They didnt try and press, they didnt want to open the game and they tried to counter with long balls. We had that style of play when Pia was our coach.I dont think theyre going to make it far in the tournament. I think it was very cowardly. But they won. Theyre moving on, and were going home.Told of Solos criticism and asked whether she felt her strategy was justified, Sundhage said only that she was content with it, and she did not address Solo specifically.Sundhage also said,?Its OK to be a coward if you win.Solo later took to Twitter, saying, Losing sucks. Im really bad at it.International Olympic Committeee spokesman Mark Adams described Solos outburst as disappointing on Saturday, adding that?people are free to say those things. We wouldnt stop their right to express themselves, within boundaries, obviously.Former USWNT star and current ESPN analyst Julie Foudy also questioned Solos comments.To call them cowards for playing a tactically smart game is ridiculous and classless and it really doesnt represent the house that we built in the U.S. team, she said. Penny Hardaway Magic Jersey . Patrice Bergeron and Daniel Paille scored 20 seconds apart a few minutes after Stamkos was taken off the ice on a stretcher with a broken right leg, and the Bruins beat the Lightning 3-0 on Monday afternoon. Evan Fournier Magic Jersey . -- Jimmy Walkers first PGA Tour trophy came with a special gift tucked inside. http://www.magicauthentic.com/customized/ . Houston won 3-0 to advance to face New York in the Eastern Conference semifinals. Last in the game, Di Vaio and Romero got into a shoving match with several Houston players. Romero appeared to elbow and kick Houston defender Kofi Sarkodie. After two full seasons away from the NBA, Ray Allen announced his retirement from professional basketball on Tuesday. Allen retires as the player with the most made 3-pointers in NBA history. He famously hit the clutch 3-pointer in Game 6 of the 2013 NBA Finals to send the game into overtime as the Miami Heat faced elimination in their pursuit of a second consecutive NBA championship.But is he the player youd want to shoot a 3 with the game on the line? Weigh in on our poll below, where Allen goes head to head with somme of the leagues other great shooters. Aaron Gordon Jersey. .Reggie Miller is the player Allen passed for most career 3-pointers, and Miller had plenty of clutch moments himself. Larry Bird was the one of the leagues first 3-point marksmen and won the first three All-Star 3-point contests. Stephen Curry has redefined what a 3-point shooter can be, and hes on track to break Allens record.--Sam Henken ' ' '
