How will you feel as a lady playing a football game with the mindset that you are playing against 11 females only to discover that some of the players are actually men? Many will feel bad. It is different when a lady plays football against men knowing that these are men, than playing with men thinking that they are ladies.
The Iranian women team did something unethical. They fielded men in some of their matches without the their opponents knowing.
This was made known by an Iranian official, Mojtabi Sharifi, who admitted that eight players that have been playing with Iran’s female team were men that have not completed their sex change operations.
Because of the leak by the Iranian official, the football governing body FIFA introduced random gender checks in 2014.
In 2014, four of the Iran women team were discovered to be men. They were able to cover their gender due to the attire they were during games. Long sleeved jersey, tracksuit pants, headscarves.
The Iranian authorities explained the problem by insisting that all the eight men in the women team are transgenders and they were at that time awaiting sex change surgery.
