Major Upsets as World Cup Advances

Radamel Falcao Man Utd Chelsea Colombia Japan

Back in the prehistory of British football, the pre-Wenger Arsenal team had a reputation for grinding out fairly joyless single-goal victories to such an extent that their supporters would self-deprecatingly chant "1-0 to the Arsenal".

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.

"It's going to be a hard match with Japan after this Polish match... Why I support Japan", a social media user tweeted. The lessons in life we can take from the game.

While Senegal beat Poland 2-1, Egypt and Morocco could be eliminated inside the first week, while Nigeria and Tunisia lost their opening encounters.

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

As reported by Chris Wright of ESPN FC, both sets of fans temporarily paused their celebrations after opening wins to pick up litter in the seats around them.

No African country has ever got as far as the World Cup semi-finals and only three times has the continent had a side progress to the last eight.

For the Japanese fans, the act isn't certainly an isolated one.

North said the fans take pride in showing others that they clean up and are respectful outside their country.
