Team USA's goalkeeper called out soccer analyst and Olympic gold medalist Brandi Chastain after the U.S. women's national team beat Colombia 3-0 Saturday to advance to the Olympics quarterfinals.

Solo tweeted, "Lay off commentating about defending and gking until you get more educated @brandichastain the game has changed from a decade ago."

She followed it up, adding "3-0 and onto the quarters! Proud of our team for keeping our composure during a chippy game! On to Manchester!"

For obvious reasons, the tweets have drawn a lot of attention, which seems to have gotten back to Solo. Thirty minutes after the initial incendiary tweet she sent this: "Its important 2 our fans 2 enjoy the spirit of the olympics.Its not possible when sum1 on air is saying that a player is the worst defender! ... I feel bad 4 our fans that have 2 push mute, especially bc @arlowhite is fantastic. @brandichastain should be helping 2 grow the sport"

Chastain has not responded on Twitter.
