Qatari Men caught taking pictures of Ivana Knöll, the “sexiest” supporter at the World Cup

Ivana Knoll, the unofficial World Cup’s ‘sexiest fan’, make Qatar blush during the World Cup: some Qatari Men were quite impressed.

Croatia is still in the World Cup, and Ivana Knoll has no intention to leave Qatar until her country is eliminated. The Croatian model, 26, first caught attention during the match between Croatia and Saudi Arabia.

Since then she made social media exploded at every game. She wears little clothes and doesn’t fear arrest in Qatar, despite strict modesty rules in the conservative country. Male and female visitors advised to ‘dress modestly’ in public during the World cup, but Ivana Knoll is here to make Qatar think again. “how my dress or bikini can hurt someone? Please explain me that”, she says. “I heard about the rules and I was shocked. The dress code forbids showing shoulders, knees, belly and everything and I was like ‘Oh my God, I don’t even have the clothes to cover all of that”, she adds.

“I was super angry because if I’m not a Muslim and if we in Europe respect hijab and niqab, I think they need also to respect our way of life, our religion and in the end me wearing dresses, bikinis because I’m Catholic from Croatia who is here because of the World Cup. But when I arrived I was surprised they were not making any problems about dressing, they allow you to wear everything what you want – except in government buildings, and in the end that’s fine”.

Ivana Knoll says she doesn’t fear being arrested. She probably won’t be though…

And during the last Croatian game, some Qatari Men, dressed in tradtionnal clothing, just couldn’t look away, and took picture of the young woman. Maybe hosting the world cup in Qatar was a good idea after all ?
