Iran women’s goalkeeper accused of being a Man

The Asian Football Confederation is asked to investigate the case.

A qualifying game for the 2022 Women’s Asia Cup between Jordan and Iran has been overshadowed by the former accusing the latter of fielding a male player.

Iran won the game 4-2, with their goalkeeper Zohreh Koudaei subject to the accusation.

Koudaei, the Iran shot-stopper, saved two penalties as the win ensured Iran’s qualification for the Asia Cup.


This has led the Jordanian Football Association president Prince Ali bin Hussein to claim that Koudaei is a male posing as a female. Now, Prince Ali wishes for a full investigation of the Iranian side to take place.
