Fans boo, shout 'Zika!' at US goalkeeper Hope Solo
RIO DE JANEIRO - The boos just keep coming for U.S. goalkeeper Hope Solo.
Solo riled some Brazilians before the Rio Games started with when she posted a photo of herself on social media decked out in mosquito netting and armed with insecticide, with the caption: "Not sharing this!!! Get your own! #zikaproof."
As a result, fans at Mineirao Stadium in Belo Horizonte were booing her and shouting "Zika!" each time she touched the ball Saturday night during a group stage match against France.
It was a tradition that started for the U.S. Olympic opener against New Zealand on Wednesday.
