Senegal fans stun social media by tidying-up stadium after Poland win

Finally, Russia all but sealed their place in the round of 16 with a 3-1 victory over Egypt in their second game of Group A. The defeat makes qualification to the knock-out stages virtually impossible for the North African side.

Japan and Senegal supporters at the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation have become a viral hit after they were filmed cleaning up the stadium after their respective matches.

Not only did these teams impress World Cup viewers - their fans did, too. Japan showed their class to beat the ten men on Colombia 2-1.

A costly mistake by Colombia midfielder Carlos Sanchez in the opening minutes led to a red card and a penalty, helping Japan take an early lead. Kagawa then converted from the spot.

Grezegorz Krychowiak pulled back a goal in the 86th minute but Senegal help on for the win and opened the World Cup with a surprising victory just like they did in 2002.

The World Cup is always an opportunity for nations to share their own unique approach to the attractive game, celebration in victory and the grief of defeat.

But Japan made the ideal start to their World Cup campaign, becoming the first Asian country to defeat a South American team at a World Cup and earning three points in what is expected to be one of the most closely-contested groups in the tournament, with Poland and Senegal the other two nations in Group H.

Japan is known for this behavior.

Nishino appeared to find a system that worked in Japan's final friendly before the World Cup, a 4-2 victory over Paraguay, and he stuck with that on Tuesday. Poland kept up their dismal streak of World Cup starts they have four losses and three draws since beating Argentina in 1974.
