The French referee will be the first woman to officiate a match in the long history of the men’s World Cup. The appointment was announced by the world association Fifa on Tuesday. For the DFB selection it is about qualifying for the round of 16 against the Central Americans – only a win leads to the knockout stages.

The 38-year-old top referee Frappart will be supported by the Brazilian Neuza Back and the Mexican Karen Diaz Medina in the Al-Bait Stadium north of Doha (8 p.m. / ARD and MagentaTV). The fourth official is Said Martinez from Honduras.

In addition to the French, Salima Mukansanga from Rwanda and Yoshimi Yamashita from Japan will also be the main referees in Qatar. “They are not here because they are women, but as Fifa referees,” Fifa chief referee Pierluigi Collina said at the start of the World Cup. “They are here as Fifa referees and are ready for every game.”

However, the three women were not used in the first week and a half of the World Cup. World Cup host Qatar and other participating countries such as Iran and Saudi Arabia are also accused of lacking women’s rights.

“It’s obviously something new and therefore something that draws attention and interest,” Collina said. “But for us they are referees.” There is no quota or specification for the number of referees at a tournament, emphasized the 62-year-old Italian.
