0

KUALA LUMPUR: Asian football authorities claimed success on Tuesday after the sport’s governing body allowed women to wear headscarves for competitive matches, saying the move will benefit women’s football in Muslim-majority West Asia. The Asian Football Confederation (AFC) welcomed Saturday’s decision by FIFA and rule-makers the International Football Association Board (IFAB) to allow female players to cover their heads after two years of testing a safe headscarf design. |
