Knoll, a former finalist in the quest for Miss Croatia 2016, was seen blowing kisses to the crowd as she posed with a Mexican supporter who had embraced Croatia after his own country was eliminated from the group round.
Before Friday’s World Cup quarterfinal match between Croatia and Brazil, stadium security attempted to stop Knoll from taking pictures with fans, but it seems they were unsuccessful this time.
Some people in Qatar said that instead of seeing their photos of Knoll as a sign of admiration for the scantily clad 30-year-old, many simply took pictures because they didn’t like how she was dressed.
In contrast to the norm in Qatar, where women are expected to cover their shoulders, Knoll’s shoulders are evident in Lusail.
The 5’11 diva has amassed over 2.5 million Instagram followers as a result of her antics in Qatar, garnering admirers all around the world for her attitude and unwavering support of Luka Modric’s Croatia.
That was probably Ivana Knol’s favourite player, Luka Modric’s final World Cup match for his country Croatia as he will be 40 during the next world Cup.
