Senegal and Japan fans tidy up after their World Cup matches

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 and Senegal will be facing off on June 24.

A video showed fans removing rubbish from the Otkrytiye Arena, in Moscow, after they'd gone insane following their win (which we can't blame them for). Japan defeated the 2014 quarter-finalists 2-1 and Senegal gave the African continent some cheer at last with a 2-1 win over Poland on Tuesday.

Japan-based soccer writer Scott McIntyre told the BBC that cleaning up after yourself following a sporting event was "not just part of the football but part of Japanese culture".

After the Blue Samurai's achievement of being the first Asian team to beat a South American side in a World Cup match on June 19, fans celebrated by... staying back at the Saransk stadium in Russian Federation and tidying up after themselves.

While Chat is not a standalone app, it is a new set of tools within the Android Messages app already installed on handsets. It's an app that's very similar to the functionality you'll find when searching for podcasts on the mobile web right now.

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

But some fans, however, chose to clear rubbish from the stands at the stadiums.

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. Senegal's victory made them the only African team to win in the first round of matches.

Fans of the Japanese team, nicknamed "Blue Samurai", whipped out large trash bags they had brought along, scouring the stands for litter at Saransk following the game.

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