Veronica Thomas says she was “converted” to being an Argentina fan by her boyfriend and displays the country's flag on her white Nissan Mark.

“My boyfriend is a solid Argentina fan, and I love Messi... I used to watch Messi at the club level and I feel that the time is right for him and his team to win the World Cup. We came so close the last time,” she said.

Argentina was beaten in the final by Germany in the 2014 finals. A late extra-time goal by Mario Götze gave the Germans their fourth lien on the cup.

“It was a good fight. We came second. We're hoping for better things this year,” she added.
