Zohreh Koudaei, the Iranian goalkeeper in the Jordanian team who claimed to be a male goalkeeper, goes on the attack and sues the opponent for harassment: “I am a woman, I will meet them in court”
An unpleasant affair in world football. In the match that took place on September 25 between the women’s teams of Jordan and Iran in the qualifiers for the Asian Cup, which ended in a victory for Iran in a penalty shootout, the goalkeeper of the winning team, Zohreh Koudaei, stopped two penalties. As a result, the Jordanian association complained to FIFA and claimed that he was a male goalkeeper, when they even asked for an investigation to confirm the matter.
The 32-year-old Koudaei was very offended and came out in an interview with the Arab newspaper 21 against the Jordanians, whom she also intends to sue for harassment and casting doubt on her femininity: The law ”.
The Jordanians, for their part, defended themselves and issued a laconic statement: “The Federation of Football in Asia has confirmed that after an examination, it has been proven that the Iranian goalkeeper is indeed female.” The goalkeeper from Iran, who qualified 2: 4 at the end of the penalty shootout for the Asian Cup for the first time in its history, has recently gained a lot of support on social media.
