"I have processes to make those decisions and own those processes".

On Tuesday, the U.S. Women's National Team will finally begin their quest to defend their world Cup title. "She cracks under the pressure quite a bit", Solo said earlier this month on a BBC podcast.

"I don't agree a lot with Jill Ellis, to be quite honest...not the leader I wish her to be", Solo said, per Deadspin. She told Fox News the US team has shown they are "not flawless". "At this point, everything and every focus is about this group of players that are here and now".

She added: "I think the national team has shown they are not flawless, Jill Ellis is not ideal, coaching staff is not flawless, the team is not always flawless but they have a really high standard of excellence and I think that is what we should focus on and that's what we should appreciate".

"Players that we selected and preparation has been excellent, and we are just ready to focus on the match tomorrow night", Ellis, who took in charge in 2014, pointed out. "The United States knows how to find a way to win in spite of who the coach is".

Solo, a two-time Olympic gold medalist, has been outspoken about her time on the national time. Solo, now 37, never played for her country again, finishing her 17-year worldwide career with 202 appearances.

With the USWNT starting its World Cup against Thailand on Tuesday, Solo's comments set off a firestorm. Afterward, Solo called the Swedes cowards for bunkering on defense.

The federation maintained the decision was based on a culmination of events.

They go into this year's World Cup as favourites and the number-one ranked team.

Current U.S. goalkeeper Alyssa Naeher and midfielder Julie Ertz also downplayed the comments as they tried to drown out the noise heading into their opening World Cup match against Thailand. Naeher offers more of an unknown in goal as Solo consistently performed on the field even if she provided distractions with her life away from soccer. "But now I would say that this will be the hardest World Cup to win because the number of quality teams, teams that are growing the game, the personalities of the players-our game is growing and growing".

"I mean, comments are comments", Ellis told USA Today.

It's something USA national teams have done in the past, with veteran players teaching the newcomers how to eliminate distractions.

"I think people feel that and I think it's going to be an amazingly competitive World Cup with a lot of memorable moments". "Anything that you feel like doesn't keep you focused, we just try to eliminate it".
