Former Miss Croatia Ivana Knoll arrived at the World Cup semi-final match against Lionel Messi's Argentina in a plunging top.
The 5’11 model has stunned fans throughout the tournament by strutting around Qatar in racy red-and-white checked outfits, despite facing pressure from the country’s strict dress code laws.
And having attended all of Croatia’s matches so far, she was always going to turn up to the nation’s second successive World Cup semi-final appearance at the Lusail Stadium in eye-catching fashion.

Knoll arrived at the arena one hour before kick-off with ample time to pose for photographs – a feature of her World Cup appearances. The 30-year-old paired a tight-fitting Croatia-coloured top with blue jeans and an oversized hat.
But the most visually striking aspect of her outfit on this occasion was the extremely low-cut nature of her shirt. And she flaunted it while soaking in the atmosphere alongside another fan in a Mexican-themed suit and hat.
It appears the sizzling brunette did not encounter any of the problems she faced on Friday during Croatia’s penalty shootout win over Brazil. She was previously stopped from posing for snaps with fans by stadium security – but it appears Knoll was told to return to her seat rather than to cover up.
It comes after claims that Qatari locals had only photographed Knoll earlier in the tournament because of their disapproval for her outfit, as opposed to admiration for her scantily-clad look.
Qatar's usual laws urge women to cover their shoulders, whilst Knoll's shoulders have often been exposed in Lusail – along with plenty lot more. Yet her daring exploits have proved hugely beneficial, with the Croat amassing over 2.5million fans on Instagram.
Tuesday night's clash marked an opportunity for Croatia to progress to the World Cup final after doing so in 2018, before eventually losing out to France.
They progressed from Group F with draws against Morocco and Belgium and a decisive 4-1 win over Canada. Luka Modric's side have since won both of their knockout ties on penalties following 1-1 draws after 90 minutes.
Meanwhile Argentina, who were eyeing a first World Cup triumph since 1986, were propelled to victory by Messi in a heated quarter-final clash against the Netherlands.
