Japan & Senegal sweeping all before them

21 June 2018

In the 2014 World Cup which was held in Brazil, when the Japanese team was defeated by Ivory Coast, the supporters still stayed back and cleaned up after themselves.

Later in the day, Senegal fans were spotted picking up empty bottles and plastic snack containers after their 2-1 win over Poland.

Japan beat 10-man Colombia 2-1 in their opening Group H match on Tuesday, the first time an Asian team has overcome a South American one at the World Cup.

Senegal did not just become the first African country to win their first match in the world cup, but they showed the world that they came hard for the cup and they brought their ethics alongside with them. "Everyone knows the history of France and of Senegal".

How the Dwight Howard-Timofey Mozgov trade could affect the Cleveland Cavaliers

The search for the World Cup's most polite fans is down to two finalists: Japan and Senegal.

Japan-based football journalist Scott McIntyre told the BBC's Andreas Illmer that cleanliness is an important virtue in all aspects of the country. A few hours after Senegal's win, Egypt then also lost its second match, 3-1 against Russian Federation.

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

In another video, Japanese fans rocking their nation's flag could be seen busy looking for rubbish on the floor while some were seen walking with waste bags that were already filled with trash.

Winless in their six previous World Cup games on European soil, Japan went ahead in the opening minutes thanks to a Shinji Kagawa penalty.

But rather than being downcast by the loss, to Didier Drogba and co, the Japanese fans armed with Liners patrolled their side of the stadium and gathered up discarded litter.

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