IRAN’S soccer association has been blasted as “unethical” following bombshell reports that eight members of its women’s team are men.
“[Eight players] have been playing with Iran’s female team without completing sex change operations,” Mojtabi Sharifi, an official close to the Iranian league, told a local news website.
Officials have now ordered gender testing of the entire national squad and leading league players, The Telegraph in the UK reported. The eight players have not been named.
The women’s team plays in hijab headscarves, long-sleeved jerseys and tracksuit pants.
So that’s why they play in hijabs!
