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.

The Lions of Taranga won 2-1 against the European team on Tuesday in Moscow.

The on and off the pitch action of the Senegalese have turned them into the darling of many soccer fans now praying for them to do well in Russian Federation just like they did in Korea/Japan.

Despite being the first Asian team to defeat a South American side, the supporters of the blue samurai did not go overboard.

"We are not too euphoric because we do know there is going to be a hard match against Japan", Senegal coach Aliou Cisse said.

However, as more than 25,000 Colombian disappointed fans left the Mordovia Arena in Saransk, one Twitter user posted a picture of Sanchez aligned with a photograph of Escobar and the message: "I propose a dream".

XXXTentacion has faced several legal issues and was now awaiting trial on charges that he beat his pregnant girlfriend. Videos of what appeared to be Onfroy unresponsive in the driver seat of a vehicle circulated on social media Monday.

Aliou Cissé is the coach of Senegal's World Cup team. The lessons in life we can take from the game. Die Mannschaft beat Costa Rica 4-2 in a thriller in Munich, followed up by a 1-0 win over Poland.

Coming in the third minute, it was the second fastest red card in World Cup history and the first of this year's tournament.

After Senegal's win, the team's fans were also seen collecting their trash.

Japanese fans clean up the stadium after their 2014 World Cup soccer match against Greece at the Dunas arena in Natal, Brazil, on June 19, 2014.

However, the actions of the Senegalese and Japanese fans following the victory has given the football world plenty of joy and their counterparts from other countries ideal role models.
