WATCH: Argentina fan with Lionel Messi tattoo on leg

With their next World Cup match against Croatia just one day way, Argentina fans were starting to gather in Nizhny Novgorod on Wednesday and some brought their stars with them.

Die-hard supporter Gonzalo Caruso has his hero Lionel Messi tattooed on his calf.

"He is the best player and a good person. That is the most important of him," Caruso said. He even went to the same tattoo artist as the Argentine forward.

Despite all the love for Messi and the Argentine team Caruso thinks the team must improve on the pitch in order to beat Croatia.

Whatever the outcome of tomorrows match will be - Messi and Caruso will stay together for the time being.
