Hope Solo is not happy with Brandi Chastain.

Moments after the U.S. women's soccer team beat Columbia 3-0 to move to 2-0 in the Olympics, Solo took to Twitter, where she was crtical of Chastain's television commentary.

"Its 2 bad we cant have commentators who better represents the team&knows more about the game @brandichastain! #fb," Solo tweeted.

That was just the start.

Chastain, a San Jose native and former U.S. Women's National Team fixture, was critical of Rachel Buehler's play on defense.

More angry tweets followed:

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

"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 is fantastic. should be helping 2 grow the sport "
