Former U.S. women’s national team goalkeeper Hope Solo has accused Megan Rapinoe of leading the team to sign a "less-than-equal" collective bargaining agreement (CBA) with U.S. Soccer in 2017.

"Megan led the team into signing a less-than-equal collective bargaining agreement (CBA),"

Solo told 

BeIN Sports

.

"We were so close to achieving equal pay in 2016; it was offered to us, we were about to sign the contract with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC). 

"But Megan Rapinoe and the leaders of that team signed a less-than-equal CBA, which is concerning for the overall class-action suit and the overall fight.

However, Solo believes things will change and the agreement will be reached.

"But, trust me, we have history on our side, as well as congressmen and women.

"President Joe Biden is going to fight for equal pay - we believed in him four years ago and we believe in him now."
