KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia (AP) — Referee Yoshimi Yamashita will return to Qatar to make more soccer history at the men’s Asian Cup in January, after working in the country last year at the men’s World Cup.

Yamashita is among five female referees, including two referees, chosen on Thursday by the Asian Football Confederation to work in Qatar. The tournament will take place from January 12 to February 10.

It is the first time the AFC has named female referees for its main men’s event.

Katherine Jacewicz of Australia was also chosen from among the referees. The selected attendees are Makoto Bozono and Naomi Teshirogi from Japan, and Kim Kyoung Min from South Korea.

The 24-team Asian Cup will be played in most of the same stadiums as the men’s World Cup, where Yamashita served as fourth official for six group stage matches.

Yamashita was one of three female referees chosen by FIFA for the men’s World Cup. France’s Stephanie Frappert made history working on the match between Germany and Costa Rica in the group stage.
