'Worst organization in history’: 'World Cup's hottest fan' Ivana Knoll lashes out at Qatar officials
Ivana Knoll, former Miss Croatia, thinks FIFA World Cup 2022 is already a 'disaster'
Ivana Knoll, former Miss Croatia, took to her Instagram stories to voice her frustration and recount the hurdles she and her party encountered en route to the global event. "This is a disaster!" she wrote in her now disappeared story. "I feel sorry for all the people who can't go to the World Cup because of the worst organization in history."
“My entourage didn’t get a Hayya card even after 20 days, even though they have all the tickets to the final,” the stunning brunette continued, referencing the personalized document that those attending any of the World Cup matches are required to have. "It's clear why so many people didn't even want to participate in this circus!" she added. Knoll rose to fame after her sensual appearance at the 2018 World Cup in Russia went viral on the internet. The brunette beauty was dubbed 'Croatia's sexiest cheerleader' by local media as she roared on her country.
There has been a slew of controversies surrounding this year’s tournament, including complaints about unfinished fan accommodation and a last-minute ban over the service of alcohol inside stadiums. Earlier this week, a near-stampede was reported in a Qatar fan zone, with thousands crammed into a small space. Football fans were left packed shoulder-to-shoulder as the festival area with bars and a big screen was sealed off by cops at Al Bidda Park, Doha.
The organization even warned wives and girlfriends of English players to dress modestly while out and about in Qatar. They were asked to wear a scarf around their neck so as not to reveal their chests or too much of their figure. The strict Islamic nation has even banned low-cut tops and short skirts. So far Knoll hasn't caused an international incident with her clothing choices.
The German-born, who lives in Croatia's capital Zagreb, says she has loved football since she was a little girl. While studying at the Faculty of Graphics in Zagreb, she took part in the Miss Croatia beauty pageant in 2016. Days ago, the stunner treated her 578,000 Instagram followers with a drool-worthy beach snap. "How I will dress in Qatar," she wrote in the caption. The picture showed her flaunting her curvaceous physique in a revealing thong.
