Colombia’s Carlos Sanchez gets 1st red of tournament

The 2018 World Cup has already been a memorable one with two records being thrashed in both good and bad ways.

But rather than being downcast by the loss, to Didier Drogba and co, the Japanese fans armed with Liners patrolled their side of the stadium and gathered up discarded litter.

Japan's national team defeated Colombia 2-1 in the FIFA World Cup Group H opener in the Russian city of Saransk on Tuesday, to the disappointment of about 15,000 Colombian fans who arrived to the Volga Area city to support their team. "But instead of partying in the minutes after the end of the game, they tasked themselves with cleaning up their section before leaving".

Kagawa rolled Japan's resulting penalty past David Ospina in a nightmare start to Colombia's World Cup campaign. "Senegal achieved a historic triumph", Argentinian television station TyC Sports tweeted after the match.

"It's not just part of the football culture but part of Japanese culture ..."

This became the second fastest red card in world cup history after Jose Alberto Batista of Uruguay who was sent off 54 seconds into the match against Scotland back in 1986 in Mexico. "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".

The 2-1 victory was the first and only African win in the first round of matches, after Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia all lost their opening games.

Japan became the first-ever team from Asia to defeat a Southern American squad in a World Cup game, after three draws and 14 defeats.

According to a translation of the video, the Colombian man filming the Japanese fans can be heard praising the nation's culture and scolding his own people for not following their example.

Japan will take on Senegal on June 24 and then face Poland on June 28.
