Frappart made history in Istanbul as the first woman to referee a major European men's match.

Stephanie Frappart's handling of Liverpool's Super Cup victory over Chelsea on Wednesday has been hailed by media outlets across Europe.

"Stephanie Frappart will never forget yesterday.

"And not just because they were the European Super Cup referees, but because they did it at such an excellent level."

Ouest-France quoted Liverpool manager Jorgen Klopp's praise for the all-female referee team: "After the match, I told them that if we'd played as well as they refereed, we'd have won 6-0… I couldn't have more respect for Stephanie Frappart."

Neither will her assistants Manuela Nicolosi and Michelle O'Neill," Spanish paper Sport said.

Frappart, who grew up playing football for local teams in the Paris region, was hailed in the French media too.
