Iranian Women’s Soccer Team Are Accused Of Playing A MAN As A Goalkeeper

Rivals Jordan demand a ‘gender verification’ after losing penalty shootout to her amazing key saves.

Iran have been accused of playing a man as a goalkeeper for their women’s national team against fierce rivals Jordan who have demanded a ‘gender verification’ probe.

Zohreh Koudaei, 32, saved two penalties during the 4-2 shoot-out victory over Jordan in Uzbekistan on September 25, meaning the Iranian women’s team qualified for its first ever Women’s Asia Cup.

The President of Jordan’s FA, Prince Ali bin al-Hussein, tweeted a letter ‘requesting a gender verification check’ on Koudaei from the Asian Football Federation (AFC).

The Iranian team manager has denied the allegations, claiming that the Jordanian team, who were heavy favourites, were seeking an ‘excuse’ for losing the match.
