In the 2014 World Cup, Samurai Blue supporters brought big trash bags with them for use after the match with Colombia in Recife, Brazil.

Goals from Shinji Kagawa and Yuya Osako were enough for Japan to beat Colombia 2-1, before Senegal saw off Poland by the same scoreline later in the day thanks to a Thiago Cionek own goal and M'Baye Niang.

Japan and Senegal supporters at the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation have become a viral hit after they were filmed cleaning up the stadium after their respective matches.

Cisse captained the historic Senegal side that reached the quarter-finals of the 2002 World Cup in Korea/Japan and has returned to the hotseat as one of the most highly-rated coaches in Russian Federation 2018.

World Cup fans of Senegal and Japan have backed up sweeping victories on the pitch in Russian Federation with a spot of sweeping in the stands.

Japan and Senegal meet in a Group H clash on Sunday and, judging from their behaviour earlier this week, the stadium could be left cleaner than it ever has been before.

This dedication to cleanliness is a habit Japanese people often have impressed on them when they're kids, tasked with cleaning their classrooms and other parts of their schools, Osaka University sociology professor Scott North adds.

The video clip of the dashing manager's fist-pumping celebration soon made it onto social media, where it has been hailed as "the meme of the 2018 World Cup". A few hours after Senegal's win, Egypt then also lost its second match, 3-1 against Russian Federation.

While Japanese fans can be seen doing their bit alongside Columbian supporters at Mordovia Arena in Saransk.

The world cup has a lot of economic benefits for Russian Federation but it also has a lot of environmental detriments due to the amount of waste deposited by millions of visitors to Russian Federation.
