Female referees to officiate men's World Cup for 1st time

 

 Female referees will make World Cup history this year by working games at a major men's tournament for the first time in Qatar.

 

FIFA has picked three female referees and three female assistant referees among 129 officials for World Cup duty.

 

French referee Stephanie Frappart has already worked men's games in World Cup qualifying and the Champions League.

 

FIFA's list also includes a man who caused controversy when refereeing a chaotic African Cup of Nations game in January.

 

Janny Sikazwe of Zambia later explained he was suffering with heatstroke.
