As the FIFA World Cup is happening in Qatar this year, there are some strict rules that fans have been observing, like not wearing revealing clothes, no alcohol, no political messages, and no vuvuzelas.
But this one person is currently making headlines for breaking some of these rules implemented by the government of Qatar.
Ex-Miss Croatia, Ivana Knoll, 30, has been wearing some seriously revealing outfits throughout the event for which she is in the news.
Daily Mail reported that the 30-year-old has been labeled as the sexiest World Cup Fan, and people can’t stop talking about her. While some are impressed with her courage and spirit, others are annoyed that she is not being respectful of Qatar’s culture.
“During Croatia’s opening match with Morocco, the model labeled the World Cup’s sexiest fan, appeared in a red and white bikini top and tight red leggings – catching the eye of many within the crowd.”
“A photo posted after the match showed smiling men in the stadium taking pictures of the 30-year-old model.”
Ivana shows up at every match her national team plays wearing her signature skimpy red outfit and even takes photos with fans.
It was also reported that during the last Croatia match against Brazil, a few fans tried to approach Ivana to take photos with her. However, the security officers stopped the fans and strictly asked Knoll to go back to her seat.
“They don’t allow the fans to take photos with me or pose for photos down here on the railing [at Education City Stadium],” unhappy Knoll told Bild. “I then asked them why they were so rude.”
According to the New York Post, “In photos taken before Friday’s match, Knoll appears concerned while speaking with security in the stands.”
“Knoll turned heads at the match in a red and white-checkered ensemble by her swimwear brand, Knoll Doll, that included a red latex top and pants. She also sported a heart sticker on her chest in support of Croatia.”
However, despite all the drama, she enjoyed her team’s victory and posed for photos that later appeared on her Instagram.
As Croatia has qualified for the World Cup semi-final match, which they will play against Argentina, Ivana has made a bold promise to her fans.
When quizzed by the German media about how she will celebrate if her team wins on Wednesday, she revealed that she plans to get naked in the stadium.
Knoll, who was wearing a Croatian flag at the time, said, “If that happens, the flag falls…”
The model has already put herself at risk of getting arrested by Qatar officials for violating the dress code rules.
She has also defended her sultry outfit in a statement and said that the people of Qatar should respect her way of life.
“First, I was thinking if the World Cup is happening there, they for sure will allow everything to make it comfortable for all fans without any of their restrictions.”
“Then I heard about the rules, and I was shocked. In the dress code, you’re forbidden from showing your shoulders, knees, belly, and neck. I was like, ‘omg, I don’t even have clothes covering that all.'”
Ivana has already reached 2.2 million followers on Instagram, where she has shared all the updates in photos. Reportedly, Ivana will stay in Qatar until the end of the World Cup. Let’s see if her team wins on Wednesday. Fingers crossed!
