This is not the first time the team has been involved in a gender scandal.Just last year, four players were found to be men and in 2010 questions were asked about the national team’s goalkeeper.

This resulted in the sports Iranian governing body introducing mandatory gender-testing in 2014.It is not known how many of the current team were born males, The Sun reported.

Those who cannot prove their gender are barred from competing in the women’s competition, but they can be re-admitted after completing gender reassignment.
