Women officials team in top division

It is no secret that females judge matches among males in football. Furthermore they performed various tasks making history at two continents.
On 29 April a female team trio was designated to officiate Yokohama flugels marinos and Nagoya grampus from the J1 league. Leader of the game was Yoshimi Yamashita who had help from her colleagues Makoto Bozono and Naomi Teshirogi as lineswomen. Also, the main 37-year-old experienced referee was the first woman to guide a duel in the same championship last September.
Just yesterday Brazilian Daiane Muniz was among the video assistant referee team for a international club match. Her name has appeared at Huracan - Danubio who have met in the group stage of Copa Sudamericana.
Each of the above two examples happened for the very first time in Japan and South America.
