Goalkeeper Hope Solo was reinstated by U.S. Soccer after a 30-day suspension and is on the travel roster for next month’s Algarve Cup in Portugal.

Solo was suspended last month by the U.S. Soccer Federation after her husband, former Seattle Seahawks tight end Jerramy Stevens, was arrested in Southern California on suspicion of driving under the influence in a U.S. team van. Solo, in training camp at the time, was with Stevens when he pulled over.

U.S. women’s national team coach Jill Ellis announced Solo’s inclusion on the Algarve Cup travel roster on Saturday. Ellis will name the formal roster before the competition, which starts on March 4. The United States, playing in its 20th Algarve Cup, opens with Norway.

The team was 1-1 in matches during Solo’s absence.

    She has turned into a disgusting wretch of a woman. She has no business representing America on the national team as she is an embarrassment.

    We get suspended by our employer for accusations

    We should be innocent until proven guilty in a court of law

    That would be a great country to live in
