DOHA – It’s been more than three weeks since the 2022 World Cup kicked off in Qatar and there’s one woman who has captured the sighs of thousands of people at the event venue, and millions following the episode through various channels – including her photography. Her name is Ivana Knoll – Miss Croatia, better known as ‘The girlfriend of the World Cup,’ – who could not resist the urge to criticise Lionel Messi‘s Argentina National Team, just like Mexican boxer Canelo Alvarez did at some point.
As the first semi-final of Qatar 2022 between Argentina and Croatia kicked off on Tuesday, and as in every match of the European team, Ivana Knoll was one of the most requested people, especially by fans to take a souvenir of the beautiful woman. But at the end of the match she was not smiling as on other occasions, as her country’s national team was eliminated.
At the exit of the Lusail Stadium, where Croatia lost 0-3, the model and influencer could not hide her annoyance, confessing that she was sad after the defeat. She said she was sure that Argentina wasn’t that good, adding that the Croatians had a bad day in office.
“I don’t think Argentina is such a good team, that’s why. We didn’t have a good day but a bad day, that’s all,” said the model at the exit.
Since the World Cup started the Croatian model caught the attention of fans for her beauty, becoming a celebrity as her Instagram account attracted over two million followers, baptising her as ‘the girlfriend of the World Cup.’
On Tuesday she went to the Lusail Stadium with a sensual look that captivated hundreds of fans at the venue and thousands with her photo on social networks. This weekend she will have her last appearances in Qatar, but all her fans, will possibly continue to follow her through her Instagram account.
