There were concerns about her whereabouts after she was escorted out of Lusail Stadium by officials on Sunday night

An Argentina fan who went topless during the World Cup final has confirmed she is safe and well after concerns were raised over her whereabouts.

On Sunday, The Sun had reported that the woman – named Noe – had gone missing after she was spotted stripping off to celebrate Argentina’s dramatic late win over France.

The final went down to penalties after France staged two dramatic comebacks during regular time and extra time.

But the Argentines triumphed after successfully netting four penalties in a row.

Eagle-eyed viewers noticed a woman celebrating the victory after she seemingly flashed television cameras during the match.

One person tweeted: “I spotted her, very brave! she’ll be arrested over there if she’s not careful.”

With public nudity being criminalised in the Gulf state, fans initially held grave fears for the woman’s safety as many thought she’d face serious police action.

But it turns out she has managed to duck any sanction, taking to Instagram to update her followers on her whereabouts – as well as upload more videos of herself flashing.

Her profile – which includes the caption ‘La chica del topless’ – featured news stories about her antics, as well as videos of her post-match celebrations.

Fans are expected to descend on the Obelisk today after the government declared Tuesday a national holiday.

The national football team landed in Buenos Aires this morning ahead of what promises to be a huge celebration in the capital.

“The world champion squad will leave on Tuesday at noon for the Obelisk to celebrate the world title with the fans”, the Argentina Football Association (AFA) revealed on its official Twitter account.

It comes on the back of extraordinary celebrations in the capital on Sunday with supporters crowding the streets.
