Japan and Senegal fans clean stadiums after World Cup matches

Japan seals historic win over 10-man Colombia

Japan's Yuya Osako (second right) celebrates after scoring their second goal during the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group H against Colombia at the Mordovia Arena in Saransk.

Poland's fans vastly outnumbered Senegal's, but the latter group managed to bring the noise and the gift of awesome music. But those working after Japan's games will have an easier job of it. America's Steve Christakos reports.

Senegal became the first African team to win at this year's World Cup after Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia all lost.

"It's not just part of the football culture but part of Japanese culture ..." "An important aspect of Japanese society is making sure that everything is absolutely clean, and that's the case in all sporting events", sports reporter Scott McIntyre says.

Trump 'could issue pardons after Russian Federation probe', lawyer Rudy Giuliani claims
Giuliani said he is opposed to having an interview but "the president wants to do it so we have to sort through it". Trump has criticized that decision as "very unfair" as Manafort prepares for two criminal trials.

The second half was all Japan, however, and in the 73rd minute Yuya Osako headed home a Honda corner to secure his team a historic win and only their fifth victory in World Cup history. However, the actions of the Senegalese and Japanese fans following the victory has given the football world plenty of joy and their counterparts from other countries flawless role models. It is a habit drilled into citizens from a young age, with students expected to clean their school classrooms and hallways.

People on Twitter also praised their efforts.

As reported by Chris Wright of ESPN FC, both sets of fans temporarily paused their celebrations after opening wins to pick up litter in the seats around them.
