It's also noted Japan supporters carried out a similar job following their participation in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

Japanese fans are making headlines for staying behind to clean up a Russian stadium after their team's win against Colombia (2-1) at the World Cup on Tuesday night.

"It's a bit too early to say why the African sides are not doing well", said Senegal coach Aliou Cisse after his side's unconvincing win, in which they took advantage of two errors to take all three points.

Russian Federation has a lot of measures in place to cop the amount of waste and this includes 15000 volunteers for the sole aim of keeping the stadium clean but let's just say Senegal supporters thought otherwise.

The wins by Japan and Senegal have given both teams a chance to enter the round of 16, but the behavior of the fans of both teams have already left them champions in the hearts of the Russian people and those around the world.

Japan-based soccer writer Scott McIntyre told the BBC that cleaning up after yourself following a sporting event was "not just part of the football but part of Japanese culture".

For the Japanese fans, the act isn't certainly an isolated one.

Japan have two major injury concerns ahead of their World Cup opener, with Leicester City forward Shinji Okazaki and defender Gen Shoji both struggling to be fit for the game with Colombia. "Senegal does want to go through the group phase, and winning against Poland is a great start", the coach said.

Japan has also been getting in on the action and scoured the stadium, row by row, to ensure the Mordovia Arena in Saransk was clean.

And Senegal weren't the only fans to show their humble side.

Thus far, the World Cup has been hard to predict, with some of the best teams falling to underdogs and confounding the experts.
