A bronze plaque honoring former United States soccer star Brandi Chastain is to be remade after being ridiculed as "embarrassing" shortly after it was unveiled, U.S. media reported Tuesday.

Chastain attended the unveiling of her plaque at a San Francisco hotel Monday night and graciously commented, "It's not the most flattering". Even though it's very expensive, we're going to redo it'. "But I'm not an artist".
