The head of FIFA’s referee committee, Pierluigi Collina, pays tribute to the female referees who referee men’s football.
– Judging a World Cup qualifier for the first time is special and something to be proud of. They have worked hard in recent years and that they get the chance shows what a good job they have done, Collina says FIFA.
In December last year, Frappart also became the first female referee to referee a match in the men’s Champions League, when she refereed the match between Juventus and Dynamo Kiev.
