Canadian referee Marie-Solei Beaudoin caught the coin toss without looking before France vs Brazil in the last 16 of the Women’s World Cup.
Corinne Diacre’s French side progressed to the quarter-finals with a 2-1 win in Le Havre on Sunday, secured through Amandine Henry’s extra time winner.
Before kick-off, Vancouver-born ref Beaudoin showed off her impressive poise to Brazilian captain Marta as she flicked up the coin and retrieved it without breaking eye contact.
After their victory at the Stade Océane, France will play the winner of today’s game between Spain and United States at the Parc des Princes on Friday.
