Many referees were expelled for the rest of the World Cup matches, including the referees of France and Tunisia

FIFA has released several referees from the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, including complete trios that were released after the round of 16. Stephanie Frappart and Clément Turpin are still in contention.

The adventure also continues with Clément Turpin, Stéphanie Frappart and their fellow Frenchmen attending the 2022 World Cup. None of them were on FIFA’s list of referees after the round of 16. With only eight matches remaining, football’s governing body does not have the space to accommodate the 36 main referees and 69 assistant referees who have been called up to start the competition anyway.

In the list of referees who can go on vacation, many are associated with disputed decisions. Such is the case of New Zealander Matthew Conger, who was found guilty of breaching the Video Assistance Regulations (VAR) by disallowing Antoine Griezmann’s goal during the France-Tunisia match.

Germany’s Daniel Seibert and Iranian Alireza Faghani also lost. The former is disputed by all of Uruguay on a penalty not awarded against Ghana; The second was publicly repudiated by his hierarchy by whistling a penalty kick for Portugal… against Uruguay. The ax also fell to the Zambian Jani Sikazwe, who was heavily criticized during Belgium and Canada.

One of Frappart’s assistants was released

Stephanie Frappart is now the last female central referee (or fourth referee) still competing in this World Cup, since Japan’s Yoshimi Yamashita and Rwanda’s Salima Mukansanga were released. However, one of his assistants, Mexican Karen Diaz Medina, was fired, while Brazilian Noiza Pak is still present. But the latter was sometimes mobilized as a video assistant in matches in which the French did not participate.
