The Men’s Football World Cup in Qatar has seen its first display of gender equality as it has been officiated by the first woman and an African, Rwanda’s Salima Mukansanga has made World Cup history not only as the first black woman to host a Men’s competition such as this, but a woman not to say the least.


On speaking about the historic moment, Salima said they are here because they deserve to be there and that back at home this is the biggest level of football and it is not by chance but because they deserve to be there not because they were women. The competition will also see its first assistant referees which will also be women too.

The Chairman of Fifa refereeing Committee Pierluigi Collina said that the message he gave to them when they first attended the seminar of the selected officials is that they are there not here because they are women but because they were Fifa match officials
