Premiere after 113 years: For the first time, a referee leads a game of the German national team of men. The Croatia Ivana Mortally (36) was scheduled for the World Cup qualifier against Liechtenstein on Thursday (20.45 and RTL) in Wolfsburg.
Mortally brings years of experience, but it is also a debut: she whistles for the first time an international men s game. Already twice she has led the test games of the German women s national team — 2018 against Italy (5: 2) and 2020 against Sweden (1: 0).
