Croatia has had quite a World Cup journey so far but it seems like the fans in the stands are making as much noise as the players.
Nicknamed by some as the World Cup’s ‘sexiest’ fan, Miss Croatia Ivana Knoll has been catching the attention of locals and international visitors alike with her Croatia-branded outfits.

While others have criticised the model for her ‘disrespectful outfits’, Knoll remains adamant on her approach, stating that she will never be afraid of being arrested for something like that.
“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,” Knoll stated.
Despite this, she went on to reveal that she was surprised at the fact that no one was creating any problems and was allowed to wear anything she wanted, except in government buildings, which she accepted.
