Central Judge of the match Sunday between Amiens and Strasbourg, announced on Tuesday the Union (FFF), less than two months of the Women's World Cup in France.

"FIFA invited the associations with a referee selected for this Women's World Cup to prepare them for the best conditions for this high-profile competition," the association said on its official website.
