ANKARA (AA) - French referee Stephanie Frappart became the first woman to officiate a FIFA World Cup men's match Thursday.

Frappart, 38, is assisted in the Costa Rica and Germany match by two female officials -- Brazil's Neuza Back and Karen Diaz from Mexico.

FIFA assigned the all-female trio to the Group E match on Tuesday at Al Bayt Stadium.

Frappart was also the first woman to referee a French top-tier Ligue 1 and UEFA Champions League match.

She was the referee at the 2019 UEFA Super Cup title match between Liverpool and Chelsea. Liverpool beat Chelsea 5-4 on penalties to win the Super Cup at Istanbul's Vodafone Park Stadium.
