In the build-up to the World Cup, RTÉ announced an all-star panel of experienced and fresh-faced pundits to guide viewers through all the goings-on in Russia this summer.

The list included the name of Hope Solo, a former U.S. Women's international goalkeeper who in recent years has had some issues with the law (more of that explained here).

However, a fortnight after the announcement of RTÉ's line-up, and six days into the tournament, Solo has yet to make an appearance on-screen. Viewers have already seen contributions from a whole host of names including Eamon Dunphy, Damien Duff, Didi Hamann and Stephanie Roche to name but a few and fans on Twitter are starting to wonder if Solo is ever going to show up...

Guess you could say RTÉ's World Cup coverage has been Hopeless so far. With just under a month to go in the tournament, we're sure she'll will make an appearance eventually. In the meantime, we'll have to make do with Dunphy et al.
