Euros 2016 fever has gone underwater as water babies are declaring their support for the Green Army.
Adorable new photographs show Ireland fans Jade and Daryl McNamara and Sadhbh Stynes getting ready to cheer on Ireland in their clash against Sweden.
The tots showed off their pint-sized Ireland kits and their underwater skills while posing during their Water Babies class.
The water-loving babies previously showed off their talented swimming tots last Christmas with a series of festive underwater images.
Each shot was cuter than the last with toddlers calmly swimming underwater and blowing bubbles in Santa hats and candy-striped trousers.
Water Babies teaches babies how to swim at a young age to make them more comfortable and confident around water.

Swimming from babyhood, without the use of flotation devices, tends to make children supremely confident in and around water, say the Water Babies crew.
"They love experiencing a totally different underwater world to play in. And it’s a great way to start training early for the Ireland football team," they joked.
