Hope Solo is not taking defeat well.

The United States women’s national team goalkeeper is on the wrong side of history, along with her teammates, after being shocked in the knockout rounds of the Olympics.

Solo stopped one of five Swedish penalty kicks, but the United States missed two after 120 minutes of play ended in a 1-1 deadlock.

The goalkeeper, who changed her gloves prior to the final kick, was not pleased with ex-coach Pia Sundhage’s Sweden side.

This will be the first Olympics that sees the USWNT emerge without a medal.

UPDATE: Ex-USWNT coach¬†Sundhage doesn’t really care.
