French Football Federation praise Stéphanie Frappart’s Coupe de France final performance

RMC are reporting that the Fédération Française de Football (FFF) have praised referee Stéphanie Frappart’s performance in Saturday’s Coupe de France final, in which Nantes prevailed 1-0 against OGC Nice. 

The game was decided by a Ludovic Blas (24) penalty after Hicham Boudaoui (22) was adjudged to have handled in the box, a decision that garnered much criticism across social media. 

According to RMC, however, Frappart, the first female referee to have taken charge of a Coupe de France final, was satisfied with her performance, whilst it has been described by the FFF as “remarkable.” In the referee’s office she was also congratulated by Emmanuel Macron.
