Another commented: “Thank you Ivana for representing our beautiful country with love and pride.” A third follower added: “You are the best Croatian woman I’ve ever seen.”
Ahead of leaving Qatar, though, Knoll took the opportunity to amaze her fans one last time as she posed in a barely-there bikini, prompting her followers to label her the GOAT.
Knoll had flouted the advice on clothing that had been laid out for fans travelling to Qatar for the World Cup, which did see her receive criticism from some local officials.
Visitors had been told to cover their shoulders and avoid wearing short skirts when out in public. However, Knoll instead wore bras, dresses and leggings bearing the Croatian colours as she attended matches on their run to the last four.
She admitted that she was not concerned about facing repercussions for her clothing as she believed her dress sense does not hurt anyone. Speaking to The Sun, she explained: "I think how can my dress or bikini can hurt someone? Please explain me that."
