Honduran referee Said Martinez continues to expand his story in the current edition of Qatar 2022, as he was once again named by FIFA in this competition.
Martinez adds two more new appointments to the sporting event and will be ahead of Messi and under Stephanie Frappart, the first referee to direct at a World Cup.
And the El Karacho whistle will again be the fourth referee in the decisive match between the selection of Argentina and Poland, the match corresponding to the third date of Group C.
The duel between the Argentines and the Poles will be at Stadium 974 in the city of Ras Abu Aboud, Doha, Qatar, starting at 1:00 pm (Honduras time), and it is very important because both of the favorite teams are in their key, seeking to pass it to the round of 16.
Martinez will be accompanied by the shortlist of judges from the Netherlands consisting of Danny Makley, Hessel Stegstra and Jan de Vries.
Together with the first referee in the World Cup
Said Martinez has also been appointed as the fourth referee in the duel between Costa Rica and Germany, in which one of the Group E qualifiers will be decided.
Stephanie Frappart will be the hero of a historic World Cup event on Thursday: she will become the first woman to officiate a men’s World Cup match. The Frenchwoman is set to do justice in the duel between Germany and Costa Rica, in the third date of Group E, which will determine the continuity of both of them in the most important football tournament.
In addition, Frappart will be accompanied by a short list of referees made up entirely of women, in another memorable milestone in Qatar 2022: Brazilian Newsa Pac and Mexican Karen Diaz Medina will accompany her as assistants. Meanwhile, Honduran Said Martinez will take over the duties of the fourth official.
