Japan fans impress by cleaning up stadium

Japan seals historic win over 10-man Colombia

Poland's fans vastly outnumbered Senegal's, but the latter group managed to bring the noise and the gift of awesome music.

"But their fans instead of celebrating minutes after the game are responsible for cleaning their sector before leaving #Respect".

Fans from Japan went on a similar cleaning spree during 2014's World Cup.

He said: "You often hear people say that football is a reflection of culture".

Probably still on a high following a historic victory, they chose to clean up after themselves in the stadium.

If World Cups were won because of the behaviour of a country's fanbase, then Japan and Senegal would make the 2018 final.

After the Blue Samurai's achievement of being the first Asian team to beat a South American side in a World Cup match on June 19, fans celebrated by... staying back at the Saransk stadium in Russian Federation and tidying up after themselves.

"Senegal achieved a historic triumph", Argentinian media outlet TyC Sports tweeted.

"It's not just part of the football culture but part of Japanese culture", Japan-based football journalist Scott McIntyre told the BBC. Senegal's victory made them the only African team to win in the first round of matches.

Sanchez, described as "one of Colombia's most important players" by national team manager Jose Pekerman, struck out a hand to block Shinji Kagawa's effort on the line and subsequently received the second fastest red card in World Cup history.

Interestingly both teams will lock horns on June 24th where the Taranga Lions will be hoping to take control of Group H should they earn another victory against Japan.
