Fans loved Senegal's celebrations after World Cup win

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

At 42, Cisse, who played for Birmingham City and Portsmouth as well as several French clubs before becoming a coach, is the youngest manager in the World Cup.

Cisse however agrees that after five defeats in the six games featuring African teams, the hunt for glory could take some time.
