Japan beat Colombia to make World Cup history

Radamel Falcao Colombia

Meantime, Brazilian-born defender Thiago Cionek became the first Polish player to score an own-goal at a World Cup when he deflected a goal-bound effort into his own net to give Senegal a lead they never relinquished.

Internet users praised the Japanese fans for bringing their manners to the pitch.

Following the unfancied side's 2-1 victory over their South American opponents, the diligent fans were filmed putting plastic cups, bottles, cardboard and food waste left scattered below the stadium's eye-catching acid orange seats into blue bin bags.

"But their fans instead of celebrating minutes after the game are responsible for cleaning their sector before leaving #Respect". They're not alone in promoting clean spectating: Senegalese fans have also been spotted indulging their tidying-up tendencies during this year's competition; the two teams face each other on Sunday, virtually ensuring a spick-and-span stadium afterward.

Japan's win of the World Cup match against Colombia is twice sweet as the actions of Japan fans off the pitch are winning the hearts of millions.

Speaking to the BBC, a Japanese sports journalist said that it is a part of Japanese culture. "You often hear people say that football is a reflection of culture".

As per a report by The Independent, Senegal's win against Poland- which made the team the first African nation to win its opening game this World Cup- sparked celebration among the team's fans at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow. "An important aspect of Japanese society is making sure that everything is absolutely clean and that's the case in all sporting events and certainly also in football".

Japan and Senegal will be facing off on June 24. She has arrived in Russian Federation to attend the games of the national team, ' an employee of the Japanese embassy in Moscow said.
