U.S. Soccer may need to reconsider its “One Nation, One Team” slogan.

After news broke of former U.S. women’s national team star Abby Wambach’s arrest on allegations of driving under the influence of intoxicants, men’s national team players Alejandro Bedoya and Jozy Altidore took advantage of a chance to mock Wambach and her former teammate Hope Solo on Twitter.

Bedoya’s comments refer to Wambach’s controversial criticism of U.S. men’s coach Jurgen Klinsmann on Bill Simmons’ podcast in December. The 35-year-old said the German coach “brought in these foreign guys,” and added that “it’s just not something that I believe in.”

Altidore, meanwhile, poked fun at U.S. goalkeeper Solo, who was riding in the passenger seat of an official U.S. Soccer van when her husband Jerramy Stevens was arrested for DUI in January 2015.

Both Bedoya and Altidore have yet to delete their tweets, and Bedoya doubled down on his criticism of Wambach with a subsequent series of tweets.
