Did a Man as a Goalkeeper for Their Women’s National Football Team?
Jordan accused Iran’s national women’s football team of playing a man as their goalkeeper during the September Asian Cup qualifier. The accusations came after Iran’s 4-2 shoot-out victory in the tournament two months ago. The Jordan Football Association (JFA) has called upon the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) to launch a probe to determine the sex of the goalkeeper, Zohreh Koudaei. JFA president, Prince Ali Bin Al-Hussein, in a letter to the AFC requested a “gender verification check” on Koudaei, who was seen wearing a ‘hijab’ during the tournament in September.
