French referee Stephanie Frappart will make history on Thursday after she's set to become the first woman to referee a men's FIFA World Cup match. She will take charge of the all-important Group E encounter between Costa Rica and Germany and will lead an all-female refereeing team at the Al Bay Stadium, in Al Khor.

Stephanie Frappart will be joined by Neuza Back, of Brazil, and Karen Diaz Medina, of Mexico as the two lineswomen who will support the Frenchwoman.

Frappart is no stranger to the big stage as she made her debut in the men's FIFA World Cup when she was the fourth official in the Group C match between Mexico and Poland last Tuesday. She has made history earlier too.
