Neil Sullivan, Serhiy Rebrov are posing for a picture:                      Generally speaking, if a player is capable of shining on the international stage, they stand a good chance of making an impact in any of Europe’s top leagues. The following players proved that logic to be flawed, however, by spectacularly failing to live up to the standards they set for their national teams in the Premier League.                                                                              Whether they were too young, felt too much pressure or simply weren’t as good as that one tournament suggested, these players proved to be big disappointments in England.

Frappart refereed her first Europa League fixture in October, when Leicester City took on Zorya Luhansk at the King Power Stadium, and last week ran the rule over Granada v Omonoia Nicosia.

Following the Super Cup clash in Istanbul last year, which Liverpool won 5-4 on penalties following a 2-2 draw after extra time, Reds boss Jurgen Klopp hailed the performance of Frappart and her all-female team of officials.

"I spoke to the refereeing team after the game [and said] that if we would have played like they whistled, then we would have won 6-0," Klopp told reporters.

"They played a brilliant game. They were good, they were really good. There was pressure on them like hell. It was an historic moment and they stayed themselves, stayed calm and did what they had to do in a very difficult and intense game.

"I couldn't have more respect, it was a really brilliant performance."
