Senegalese and Japanese Fans Celebrate World Cup Wins By Cleaning The Stadium

Senegalese and Japanese Fans Celebrate World Cup Wins By Cleaning The Stadium

What better way to leave a good impression than keeping the place neat and tidy. When you stay at a mate's place, you should always make the bed or take your plate into the kitchen (and wash it).

It looks like Senegalese and Japanese fans got the memo because after their World Cup wins yesterday, fans stayed behind to clean up the mess they had made. And with the World Cup 2018 in full swing, it was probably a pretty messy affair.

Senegal beat Poland in a 2-1 victory and similarly, Japan defeated Colombia in another 2-1 win. But instead of leaving for the nearest bar, fans from the two teams decided to stay behind and clean up the mess. Follow suit, rest of the world.

Their actions received a lot of praise on social media as they showcased their ability to be humble and helpful in victory.

Senegal took a surprise 2-0 lead in their opening match after two mistakes from Poland. Coach Aliou Cisse said he's proud of his players and rightfully so.

Japan also got involved in a spot of Operation Clean Up when they beat Colombia. It's impressive stuff.

Equipped with large rubbish bags they brought along, the fans marched through the rows picking up rubbish, to leave the place just as neat as they had found it.

Bet the cleaners are rubbing their hands together and begging for shifts at the next Japan or Senegal games.

"It's not just part of the football culture but part of Japanese culture," Japan-based football journalist Scott McIntyre told the BBC.

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

A number of people applauded the fans for their actions, claiming it was a mark of respect that other nations should replicate.

One Nigeria fan tagged his national side and joked: "@NGSuperEagles If this will bring victory please sweep the whole football field before the game."
