Iran women’s goalkeeper Zohreh Koudaei accused of being a man
Jordan’s women’s football team have demanded an investigation into whether an Iranian goalkeeper who played against them is a man.
The president of Jordan’s FA, Prince Ali bin al-Hussein, tweeted a letter “requesting a gender verification check” on the Iranian goalkeeper Zohreh Koudaei.
Koudaei saved two penalties as Iran beat Jordan 4-2 in a shoot-out to qualify for the 2022 Women’s Asian Cup for the first time in their history. The match on September 25 ended in a goalless draw but was decided on penalties.
