Sweden’s cutest Olympic supporter is going for gold!

Princess Madeleine snapped an adorable photo of 1-year-old Prince Nicolas in a mini version of Sweden’s national soccer uniform ahead of Friday night’s final match against Germany.

The pint-sized royal athlete-in-training flashes a big smile as he clutches a tiny soccer ball in the sweet picture.

The Swedish team caused a major upset when they beat pre-tournament favorites Team U.S.A., and then knocked out host country Brazil before a crowd of 70,000 fans.

Now, they’re facing the No. 2 team in the world, Germany, who had a stunning 2-0 victory on Tuesday over previously unbeaten Canada. (We hope you’re watching, Hope Solo!)

Is Princess Kate Competing in the Olympic Games?!

Proud supporter Princess Madeleine took to Facebook to share the royal family’s national pride ahead of the big game.

“Nicolas wishes the Swedish women’s football team all the best for tonight’s gold medal match!” the princess wrote, adding the hashtag “#GoSweden.”

King Carl XVI Gustaf and Queen Silvia will be in Rio’s Maracana Stadium to cheer the Swedish team on in person. For the Queen, the match may be slightly bittersweet – her mother was Brazilian and her father was German!
