Posters of Koudaei hanged in squares in Iran: Our hero athlete

Posters of Koudaei, the goalkeeper of the Women’s Football National Team, which is on the agenda with gender discussions in Iran, were hung in the squares in the capital Tehran to support her.

Zohreh Koudaei, who plays in the Zubahen Team in Isfahan, was at the center of the discussions with the claim of the Jordan Football Federation when he caught the attention with the penalties he saved in the Group G match of the 2022 Asian Football Confederation (AFC) Women’s Asian Cup Qualifiers played with Jordan.

The Jordan Football Federation, which sent a letter to the AFC, demanded that “a transparent and clear investigation be launched by a committee of independent medical experts to investigate the suitability of the player in question and other members of the team”, sparking outrage in Iran.

While Iranian social media users supported the national actress with the hashtags they opened under the name Koudaei on Twitter and other channels, women’s rights organizations reacted to their silence.

Tehran Metropolitan Municipality also hung posters of the national football player in Veli Asr, Haftom Tir and Fatemi squares, which are the most lively spots in the capital, to support Koudaei.

The posters with the slogans “Our hero athlete” and “Iran’s pride” were appreciated by the people of Tehran and social media users.
