Japan seals historic win over 10-man Colombia

Japan seals historic win over 10-man Colombia

Carlos Sanchez has received death threats after his red card in Colombia's World Cup defeat vs Japan. Thus far, the World Cup has been hard to predict, with some of the best teams falling to underdogs and confounding the experts.

The on and off the pitch action of the Senegalese have turned them into the darling of many soccer fans now praying for them to do well in Russian Federation just like they did in Korea/Japan. The lessons in life we can take from the game.

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.

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

They played an exciting, fast-paced brand of football, and a number of fans fell in love with them from the first whistle.

Senegal and Japan fans help clean up stadiums following World Cup games
After Senegal's win, the team's fans were also seen collecting their trash. Not only did these teams impress World Cup viewers - their fans did, too.

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

The fans, draped in Japanese flags and scarves, were filmed sweeping the stands of the 44,000-seat, bowl-shaped Mordovia Arena, where just a few minutes earlier they had wildly celebrated an unexpected victory over José Pékerman's side, quarter-finalists in 2014. "Why I support Japan".

"Cleaning up after football matches is an extension of basic behaviours that are taught in school, where the children clean their school classrooms and hallways", explains Scott North, professor of sociology at Osaka University.

What do fans make of the fact their post-match cleaning spree becomes a regular hit on social media?
