Fans of Senegal and Japan football teams in Russia have been showered with praises cleaning up after themselves before leaving the stadium.

Videos that have since gone viral on social media show fans of of the two countries picking up plastic bottles and other trash left underneath chairs from the different rows of their stadia.

Japan made history as 1st Asian team to defeat a S. American team in #WorldCup. But what happened after is just as impressive. A friend sent me this video of Japanese fans cleaning the stadium after the game. They actually brought the blue trash bags with them. Class act. #COLJAP
