Croatian World Cup beauty is stopped by rude stadium security at quarter-final clash with Brazil; Ivana Knoll, an Instagram model from Croatia, is enjoying her nation’s unexpected quarterfinal victory after they defeated Brazil 4-2 on penalties.
After traveling to the Middle East for the major game, Knoll, who had previously been elected Miss Croatia, attracted much attention. She stated that stadium security in Qatar barred her from taking selfies with supporters before her nation’s World Cup quarterfinal match against Brazil.
A group of beaming Qatari supporters was spotted taking pictures of the 30-year-old as she descended stairs while wearing a red and white bikini top and tight red leggings during Croatia’s opening match.
Knoll is at Croatia’s crucial match against Brazil on Friday in Al Rayyan, where the two nations compete for a potential semi-final matchup against Holland or Argentina.
However, security personnel at Education City Stadium advised the barely dressed model not to take any pictures of herself or with spectators before kickoff.
They don’t let the fans take pictures of me or stand here on the railing for views, she claimed to Bild. I then inquired as to their rudeness.
It’s fantastic; Knoll stated this week that “no one has ever told me to cover myself.”
“Even the locals want pictures with me,” says everyone. There was only one negative response from a Qatari on Twitter. But all he wanted was attention.
Brazil was eliminated from the 2022 World Cup by Croatia 4-2 on penalties following a 1-1 draw in their quarterfinal match.
