RECIFE, Brazil (AP) — U.S. Soccer Federation President Sunil Gulati (Sue-NEAL Goo-LAH-tee) says the federation plans to speak with Hope Solo and her representatives in the next 24 hours regarding the goalkeeper’s weekend domestic violence arrest in the Seattle suburbs.

Gulati spoke in Recife, Brazil, on Wednesday ahead of the Americans’ World Cup Group G finale Thursday against Germany.

Solo entered a not guilty plea during a court appearance Monday and was released without bail. She was arrested Saturday at her sister’s home in Kirkland, Washington.

Authorities say Solo was intoxicated early Saturday when she was accused of assaulting her sister and 17-year-old nephew. But her lawyer, Todd Maybrown, said she was a victim in the altercation.

She was ordered not to have contact with the alleged victims and to refrain from drinking alcohol.
