French referee Stephanie Frappart will become the first woman to take charge of a men's World Cup game when she handles Germany vs. Costa Rica on December 1st in Qatar. Brazil’s Neuza Back and Mexican Karen Diaz Medina are the other women officials for the Germany vs Costa Rica fixture. It is the first time a men’s World Cup match will be led by an all-female refereeing team. Frappart became one of three female referees to be selected in the pool for the World Cup in May, along with Rwanda’s Salima Mukansanga and Yoshimi Yamashita of Japan.
