Iran pays tribute to its national team goalkeeper and hangs her pictures at the entrances to Tehran: ‘The heroic girl’ ‘Iran’s pride’!

The municipality of the Iranian capital, Tehran, posted pictures of the Iranian player, Zahra Kodayi, at the entrances to the city.

One of the banners read: “The heroic girl, Zahra Kodayi, the pride of Iran, goalkeeper of the Iranian women’s team.” In a clear gesture to rehabilitate the Iranian player after what he considered severe attack and bullying, he had attacked her on social media.

The Jordan Football Association had requested a fair and transparent investigation by the Asian Confederation, to verify the “gender” of the Iranian player, after its victory over the Jordanian women’s team in the Asian Cup qualifiers.

The Jordanian Federation said in a statement on the seventeenth of this month that it had not yet received an official response from the AFC about the results of the investigation request.
