Hope Solo continues fight for change with bid for U.S. Soccer presidency

Hope Solo made a name for herself as one of the most accomplished soccer goalkeepers in the world. But she also made headlines for what happened off the field. In her years on the national team, Solo spoke out about coaching decisions. She was suspended for 30 days in 2015. She encouraged teammates to join her in a federal complaint alleging wage discrimination. In 2016, U.S. soccer terminated her contract after she made negative comments about an opposing team at the Rio Olympics. Solo joins "CBS This Morning" to discuss why she's running to lead the U.S. Soccer Federation.
