Check out the brand new daily JOE World Cup Minipod hosted by Dion Fanning and Paddy McKenna featuring a very sad Salah, the high-powered hosts are heading to the last 16 and English pundits are up for a scrap.

Japan and Senegal are the feel-good underdog stories of the FIFA World Cup 2018 with their performances against Colombia and Poland respectively.

According to videos shared on social media, Senegal's supporters stayed back to clean up their part of the stadium after cheering their team to victory.

Meanwhile, the team's fans were winning hearts elsewhere in the stadium, taking it upon themselves to clean the stands before celebrating properly. That's what the BBC is reporting about fans of "Samurai Blue", the Japanese national soccer team that beat Colombia's players 2-1 Tuesday in Russian Federation.

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

And then Senegal fans, after their Lions upset Poland, 2-1, followed suit.

An Argentine TV channel showed Senegalese fans to fanning out on the stands and picking up trash and putting it in a pile following their win at the Spartak stadium in Moscow.
