Lonely Swedish fan brilliantly trolls the almost entirely Canadian crowd.

Props to this guy.

Sometimes when you're surrounded by your enemies you've got to make the best of a bad situation.

On Friday night Team Canada faced off against Team Sweden at the IIHF's World Junior Championship and this lonely Swedish fan must have been feeling extra lonely when his team went down 1-0 early in the game. 

Fortunately for him his Swedes would eventually bounce back with a game tying goal, and that is when the lonely fan saw his moment to brilliantly troll the almost entirely pro-Canada crowd. 

First he held up his flag in celebration, a perfectly reasonable response, and then he raised his hand in search of a high-five from members of the crowd. Unsurprisingly considering that there were no other Swedish fans in the vicinity, he didn't get the response he was looking for. 

Props to this guy for supporting his team no matter what, and for making the best of what must be a relatively awkward situation for him to be in.
