Japan, Senegal fans help clean up World Cup stadiums

Japan, Senegal fans help clean up World Cup stadiums

With Japan dominating in midfield, Colombia's Argentine coach Jose Pekerman opted to sacrifice Juan Cuadrado around the half hour mark to send on defensive midfielder Wilmar Barrios.

Senegal did not just become the first African country to win their first match in the world cup, but they showed the world that they came hard for the cup and they brought their ethics alongside with them.

After a heated World Cup match, the stands are usually left with food waste, cups and wrappers scattered in the heat of the moment.

Meantime, Brazilian-born defender Thiago Cionek became the first Polish player to score an own-goal at a World Cup when he deflected a goal-bound effort into his own net to give Senegal a lead they never relinquished. "The World Cup is played after a busy season and it's true some players arrived here in Russian Federation not feeling very well, so we need to be very careful about players' health".

It was Cheryshev's third goal of the World Cup, putting him tied with Cristiano Ronaldo at the top of the scoring chart.

Changes are coming to Colombia's team at the World Cup after a disappointing 2-1 loss to Japan.

The Japanese Embassy in Moscow told AFP Princess Takamado would also travel to Yekaterinburg where Japan will play Senegal on Sunday and where she will take part in a seminar on traditional "Kyudo" archery.

In between those two matches, Uruguay look to secure their passage to the knockout rounds when they clash with Saudi Arabia in Group A from 3am.

But it was apparent within minutes, when Sanchez got the red card, that the rematch would not go so smoothly for the Colombians.

The World Cup schedule for Wednesday has three matches.

Moscow police opened an investigation into suspected theft on Tuesday, both RBC and Interfax said, quoting a source as saying he had been staying at the Four Seasons Hotel near the Kremlin. Six of the top eight teams in the Federation Internationale de Football Association rankings failed to win their initial matches.

The South Americans thrashed the same opponent 4-1 in the group stage in the 2014 edition in Brazil, so Tuesday's defeat was even more upsetting for Colombia.
