After walking around in sexy clothes in stadiums in Qatar, causing a stir and becoming a "hit" at the World Cup, a Croatian journalist asked her one question that revealed the real story

Ivana Noll is a Croatian model who in the last two weeks has been making quite a few headlines around the world following her behavior on the pitches at the World Cup in Qatar.

Nol, formerly Miss Croatia, is defined as a "super fan" of the team, and turns quite a few heads in the Muslim country.

She became an "international star" during the tournament, as illustrated by the number of her followers on Instagram over the past two weeks jumping from 450 thousand to 1.2 million and counting.



Throughout the last week, there was concern that she might be harmed, since she arrives at the courts in very revealing clothing, which does not fit the conservative and strict Muslim dress code, which requires women to dress modestly.

A few days ago her photos went viral on the internet, when she was seen going down the stairs in the stadium and two Qataris taking pictures of her on their personal phones.

The photos attracted many headlines in the world, since it was claimed that the Qataris are "hypocrites" since on the one hand they are conservative and on the other hand they are photographing her with a smile.

After that it was reported that they were actually taking pictures of her in order to report her to the authorities, so that they would "take care of her" and ban her from coming to the stadium like that.

"They didn't photograph her because they love her, but because they didn't like her clothing, which is against our culture," tweeted the Qatari businessman Muhammad Hassan Al Jafiiri, "any local resident can confirm that to you."

She herself calmed the spirits and announced that she received permission to dress like this and the Shaktars allow her to arrive in this revealing way at the stadiums.

"They allowed me to wear what I want," she said, and reassured many, "I was never afraid of being arrested here, I also don't think / that I can hurt anyone if I walk in a bikini. And if it warrants an arrest, let me be arrested."

She herself said that "I was shocked when I first heard that the dress regulations here forbid clothing that exposes shoulders or knees... I don't have such clothes at all. If in Europe they respect the hijab, here they have to respect our clothing and my lifestyle."



In any case, after all the headlines and the interest surrounding her, yesterday one of the representatives of the Croatian media talked to what is defined as a "super fan", and asked her if she could name three players from the national team.

"Luka Modric, Diane Lovren... and that's it," she said with a smile.

In any case, it seems that despite her stay at the stadium, football itself is not on her mind.
