“Cheney is a different class of player. She dances with the ball, she can hold players off and is a very, very smart player who reads the game and can serve a 60-yard ball on a dime. … It makes me sad that she’s going to leave at such a young age, because she has a lot more in her. But I wish her all the best. … It’s just been honor to play with her.”
– Hope Solo on Lauren Holiday, whose last game for the United States was Sunday (Oct. 25). Solo was quoted by U.S. Soccer.
