Senegal, who are managed by the only black coach at the 2018 FIFA World Cup, became the first African team to get a win in Russian Federation.

Senegal ended up beating Poland 2-1 at the Spartak Stadium in Moscow, Russia on Tuesday. America's Steve Christakos reports.

It's also noted Japan supporters carried out a similar job following their participation in the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

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.

He said: "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", McIntyre explained.

Senegal have a knack of springing surprises in their opening World Cup games.

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.

Both teams had reason to celebrate on June 19.
