French referee Stephanie Frappart will become the first woman to take charge of a men’s FIFA World Cup game when she will officiate the Germany vs Costa Rica

Stephanie Frappart, Neuza Back and Karen Diaz will become the first all-female refereeing team for a men’s World Cup match as they have been named to take charge of the Costa Rica-Germany Group E match on Thursday, FIFA announced on Tuesday.

Frappart, the fourth official for the Poland-Mexico Group C clash last week, will be the main referee as she reaches another milestone after being the first female to officiate at a men’s World Cup qualifier in March and Champions League match in 2020.
