Cisse captained Senegal - who qualified from Bafana Bafana's group for this year's showpiece - to their first ever win in World Cup history when a talented 2002 generation upset France in the opener of that year's tournament.

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.

While the Senegalese supporters could have been forgiven for going on a wild party the second the match ended, instead they did something far better.

Senegal's coach Aliou Cisse's celebration when his team scored the winning goal against Poland in their World Cup opening game has become an internet sensation.

Kouyate: Poland will be our first final
This is Senegal's second appearance at the World Cup and it's the second time the team has come away with a monumental win. Poland striker Arkadiusz Milik is expected to be fit for the match against Senegal , despite suffering a hand injury.

Japan-based football writer Scott McIntyre told the BBC that cleaning up after themselves is something that is drilled into these supporters from a young age back home.

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

Winless in their six previous World Cup games on European soil, Japan went ahead in the opening minutes thanks to a Shinji Kagawa penalty.

Fans of both Senegal and Japan would've been expected to celebrate their nations' wins at the 2018 FIFA World Cup by pouring out onto the streets in celebration. One clip of the clean-up operation, shared by Argentinean channel TyC Sports, has been viewed more than 4 million times.

Not only did these teams impress World Cup viewers - their fans did, too. The Lions of Teranga's next match is against Japan on 24 June.
