“I have to control my emotions”


the judge Stephanie Frappartthat tonight Costa Rica-Germany will be the first woman to direct a match of world masculine, assured that he will feel “great emotions”, but he needs to “channel it” to make a good arbitration.

“When I found out, the emotion was intense, I did not expect it, I am very proud to represent France in the World Cup,” said the referee in statements distributed by FIFA.

Frappart, who has been the first woman in many other competitions, will hit the ceiling with this designation, but said her main goal is to “play a good game”. “I had to control my emotions to focus on the pitch,” said the Frenchwoman.

“I will feel a lot of emotions entering a World Cup stadium that is sure to be full and where there are a lot of expectations,” he commented. “But immediately we have to focus on the game because we have to make good decisions. You make a good performance when you focus on the important goal, the pitch,” he added.

At 38 years old, Frappart is the first woman to referee a match in the French league, Champions League and Eurocup and now she will add a new milestone by being in charge of a match in the men’s World Cup.
