THE World Cup’s “Hottest Fan” trolled Japan by posting a cheeky video of her eating sushi after her team defeated her.
Ivana Knoll’s beloved Croatia triumphed against the Asian giants at Al Janoub Stadium win place in the quarterfinals.
Ahead of the do-or-die match, Knoll was spotted taking photos of Japanese fans before kick-off at 3:00 p.m.
She also posted a picture of her sushi meal with the caption, “Japan we’re ready for you!”
After Croatia beat Japan on penalties, she posted another video of herself eating sushi.
“Today’s menu only features sushi,” was her cheeky message to the Japanese.
The ridicule comes as Knoll drew “disapproving” attention for her racy outfits at this year’s World Cup, hitting back at critics in a new racy Instagram post.
The Croatian supermodel wowed in a bikini on the beach in Doha this afternoon ahead of her side’s round of 16 clash with Japan.
Taking to Insta in front of the giant tie, she showed off her curves in a tight one-piece suit as she proudly waved the flag for the Vatreni.
“Let’s party like it’s 1998,” she wrote, referring to the Croatians’ first successful semi-final appearance.
She then added a love heart emoji – much to the affection of her 1.2million devoted fans.
Always present to cheer on her side in Doha, Ivana has already stunned in several low-cut outfits featuring Croatia’s iconic checkered crest.
Previously, the 30-year-old German-born model wore a racy, form-fitting outfit to her side’s game against Morocco and shared snaps of herself in a revealing swimsuit as she posed next to the curving skyscraper in Lusail.
She later caught the attention of onlooking Qatari locals when she appeared in a red check bikini top and tight red leggings in the final group match against Belgium.
All of this has earned her the name of “Hottest Fan in the World Cup”.
According to the Mail Online, prominent Qatari entrepreneur Mohammed Hassan Al-Jefairi claimed local men snapped and stared at her for disapproving of her outfit.
After last Thursday’s 0-0 draw between Croatia and Belgium, he wrote on Twitter: “FYI, they’re taking a picture not because they like them, but because they don’t like how they’re dressed incorrectly in relation to ours is culture.
“You can confirm with any local Qatari to report it.”
Visitors to Qatar were advised to cover their shoulders and avoid short skirts.
And many glam footie fans are at risk of being slapped with hefty fines or even jailed for showing off their figures while in the Gulf nation.
But Ivana has continued to poke fun at the coverage and previously wore a skimpy thong swimsuit to a Qatar beach before the competition began.
