Bibiana Steinhaus draws praise on historic Bundesliga debut

The 38-year-old police officer, who has been a German FA referee since 1999, became the first woman to officiate a top-flight game.

Bibiana Steinhaus made history on Sunday as she became the first woman to referee a Bundesliga match, taking charge of the 1-1 draw between Hertha Berlin and Werder Bremen on Sunday

And the 38-year-old police officer, who has been a German FA referee since 1999 and taken charge of 80 second division matches since 2007, did so to wide acclaim.

German FA president Reinhard Grindel described it as "certainly a historic moment."

"To make all the right decisions so confidently, it was certainly a first-class performance," he added.

Hertha defender Sebastian Langkamp said: "She did well, although that is no surprise."

Werder coach Alexander Nouri added: "I've said before that it doesn't matter whether a man or a woman is refereeing. It's the performance that counts and that was okay."
