Solo, a two-time Olympic champion and the national record-holder with 78 shutouts, had been cleared of domestic abuse charges just days before the predawn incident in Manhattan Beach last month. Although Solo was a passenger in the van, the episode led to her suspension from the team.
"Clearly I wasn't thinking," Solo told "GMA" anchor
"That's not an excuse. But it was stupid."
Solo missed two friendlies during her absence. The U.S. lost to France, 2-0, and beat England, 1-0. On Saturday, she was one of 25 U.S. players called up for next month's Algarve Cup tournament in Portugal.
"I'm not going to be too hard on myself right now," said Solo, who teared up at times in the interview. "Everybody makes mistakes. Everybody learns from them -- hopefully -- and continues to work on themselves. I'm a work in progress."
