The most noteworthy aspect of the Qatar World Cup is the appointment of three female referees and three female assistant referees, which is a first in the 92-year history of the Men’s World Cup.
Officials Salima Mukansanga (Rwanda), Yamashita Yoshimi (Japan), Neuza Back (Brazil), Karen Diaz Medina (Mexico), and Kathryn Nesbitt (the United States) will serve as referees and assistant referees, respectively. The majority of them are referees who have broken the “glass ceiling” in men’s soccer in order to be acknowledged for their abilities.
According to Korean sportsbook reports, Frappart has already presided over the European rounds of both the Qatar World Cup and the UEFA Champions League. She was dubbed the “best” in women’s football and officiated the Women’s World Cup final in France in 2019. She has subsequently officiated a French Ligue 1 game. She expanded her expertise in men’s soccer in August of the same year by referring the UEFA Super Cup match between Liverpool and Chelsea.
Qatar World Cup Referees Include Six Women
Yamashita is scheduled to officiate “two straight World Cup events” after officiating the 2019 Women’s World Cup in France. Yamashita is renowned for her abilities in international men’s games, including the AFC Champions League match between Melbourne City (Australia) and Jeonnam (Korea) in April of this year. Yamashita officiated the US-Sweden match at the Tokyo Olympics last year.
Mukansanga was also the first female official in the annals of the African Cup of Nations. She has a ton of experience under her belt since earning her FIFA Certification, having officiated at the FIFA Women’s World Cup, the African Women’s Cup of Nations, and the Confederation of African Football (CAF) Women’s Champions League.
The controversial referees have also been chosen to serve as referees. Janny Sikazwe (Zambia), who blew the last whistle in the 40th minute of Tunisia and Mali’s January African Cup of Nations group stage encounter, will take on the role of referee. Facundo Tello (Argentina), who issued 10 red cards in the Argentina Cup Final’s final game between Boca Juniors and Racing, will also serve as a referee.
129 officials, comprising 36 referees, 69 assistant referees, and 24 video match officials, will be “King Solomon of the ground” throughout this World Cup. Since assistant referee Jeong Hae-sang was selected during the 2010 World Cup in South Africa, Korea has failed to produce World Cup referees three times.
