Frappart, 35, will be assisted by her compatriot Manuela Nicolosi and Ireland's Michelle O'Neill.The trio have worked together at bigger matches -- they were in charge of this year's Women's World Cup final in France -- but there is no doubt they will be under intense focus at Istanbul's Vodafone Park.Frappart, who in April became the first female referee in France's Ligue 1, also dismissed the idea that it was more difficult to officiate a men's game.The Super Cup is an annual match played between the winners of the Champions League and the Europa League. Liverpool beat Tottenham Hotspur in the Champions League final last season while Chelsea defeated Arsenal in the Europa League final.
