However, that most likely won't be the case if the supporters are Japanese.

However, as more than 25,000 Colombian disappointed fans left the Mordovia Arena in Saransk, one Twitter user posted a picture of Sanchez aligned with a photograph of Escobar and the message: "I propose a dream".

Argentine network TyC Sports shared a video of the kind act, saying that instead of celebrating the victory Senegalese fans showed respect by cleaning up their sector.

Japan-based football journalist Scott McIntyre told the BBC that the Asian country's fans regularly tidy up after their domestic matches, and is a behaviour embedded in their culture. "We are Senegal but I can guarantee the whole of Africa is supporting the Senegal team".

"This is my favorite moment of the World Cup so far, Japan fans picking up litter after their victory vs Columbia", tweeted Christopher McKaig.




Japan bested Colombia before Senegal beat Poland in separate Group H matches on Tuesday. As the tournament has arguably failed to spark into life by the end of the first full week of games, Wednesday's three 1-0s has taken the total of such scorelines up to nine - just three shy of the entire total from Brazil 2014.

A video showed fans removing rubbish from the Otkrytiye Arena, in Moscow, after they'd gone insane following their win (which we can't blame them for).

Since 1950, when group stages were introduced, only seven host nations have won their first two matches.

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

Five defeats in the six games featuring African teams offered little hope of new benchmarks being set with Senegal's 2-1 triumph over Poland the only bright point. These are efforts that haven't gone unnoticed by fans from other countries, per Mashable.
