Headscarf issue solved, Iran girls focus on soccer

The Iranian girls soccer team can concentrate on winning matches at the Youth Olympics now that the controversy over their headscarves has been settled.

The Iranians lost to Turkey in their opening match on Thursday but have a chance for a victory in the six-nation tournament against Papua New Guinea on Sunday.

The compromise outfit consists of a cap, long-sleeved tops, below-knee trousers and long stockings. The new white apparel was created by Iranian designers and has red-and-green details in the colors of the Iranian flag.
