Hope Solo and Joseph Blatter, FIFA president announce Abby Wambach of United States during the FIFA womens player of the year trophy during the FIFA Ballon d'Or Gala 2013 at Congress House on January 07, 2013 in Zurich, Switzerland. I've seen it amongst players in the locker room. After that I didn't see him and that was kind of bad. "I don't know why more players don't speak out".
Blatter, via his spokesman, on Friday night denied that such an incident had taken place. "I wish more women, especially in football, would speak against it, about the experiences, because some of those people still work [in football]". She had to pull herself together quickly to give the award to Wambach. In other cases, for instance, I've told my teammates: "Don't ever f***ing touch me!"

Drinking Alcohol Really Does Raise Your Cancer Risk, Doctors Warn
Drinking is linked to 3.5 percent of all cancer deaths in the US , which is about 21,000 Americans every year. The link between increased alcohol consumption and cancer has been firmly established.
When discussing the incident recently with the Guardian, she added: "I was in shock and completely thrown off". I always felt I'd "handled it' and stood up for myself in those situations, but there were never any consequences for the perpetrators".
Solo has taken to social media to praise those who have spoken out against sexual harassment using the hashtag #MeToo.
Blatter also famously argued in 2004 that players could boost the popularity of the women's game by wearing tighter shorts.
In an Instagram post, she said: 'For the past few days, I have been thinking about all the uncomfortable situations myself and/or my teammates have experienced throughout the years with trainers, doctors, coaches, executives and even teammates'.
The 81-year-old Blatter served as Federation Internationale de Football Association president for almost 17 years before being kicked out of office and suspended amid accusations of widespread corruption.
