Senegal and Japan fans help clean up stadiums following World Cup games

Colombia

Colombia

In 1994, Colombian defender Andres Escobar was murdered days after he scored an own goal in a 2-1 group-stage loss to the United States that ended the team's World Cup. The Argentine has a natural replacement in Wilmar Barrios, who plays for Boca Juniors.

In the previous three meetings between the two sides, Japan has failed to defeat Colombia as the former side lost twice while they settled with the share of the spoils in the remaining game. But he too faded as Japan stretched Colombia with waves of attacks.

Star player James Rodriguez was brought on for Colombia in the second half after not being deemed fit to start from the outset, and it seemed that his side may benefit despite the numerical disadvantage.

But Pekerman has always insisted Colombia, quarter-finalists in 2014, are not a one-man team and he can take heart from valiant performances from other players. The coach may also decide to go for the size and strength of Yerry Mina against Poland.

On Wednesday, Uruguay fans joined the fun with El Pais posting a video on social media of fans cleaning up their area after La Celeste's 1-0 victory over Saudi Arabia in Rostov.

Halilhodzic had led the side to their sixth consecutive World Cup finals but concerns about the direction the team was going prompted the JFA to replace him with Akira Nishino, giving the new coach 71 days to prepare the side for Russian Federation.

Falcao wrote on Instagram that this is the moment for "turning adversity into opportunity".

Japanese and Senegalese supporters received praise after they were seen picking up their trash and tidying up their stadium section following their respective matches Tuesday.

In an interview with BBC, a Japan-based soccer journalist said, "An important aspect of Japanese society is making sure everything is absolutely clean and that's the case in all sporting events".
