After their teams won surprising upsets, fans from Senegal and Japan each celebrated in the stadium, and when the partying was done, they stuck around and cleaned up. "Fair play bit of class shown here".

Mohamed Salah won and converted a penalty for a consolation goal on his return from injury but Egypt's first World Cup in 28 years could be over in barely five days following a second straight loss.

Colombia made a nightmare start to their campaign when Carlos Sanchez was dismissed in the first three minutes for handling a shot by Shinji Kagawa after some poor defending.

But rather than exit the stadium immediately after the final score to celebrate the result at the nearest pub, fans from the winning teams remained amongst the seats long after the final whistle so that they could tidy up after themselves and leave the place as clean as they had found it. We did not create any chances. "I'm not sure if Senegal played well or we were so bad".

Japan's second goal was the first they'd ever scored from a corner in 18 World Cup matches.

Juan Quintero's clever free-kick drew the South American side level, however, when he fired low under the jumping wall before half-time.

Russian media reported that the fans called police when they could not find the hotel, having found the same street name as in the World Cup host city.

One impressed fan described the efforts of the Japanese as his "favourite moment of the World Cup so far", while another added it was an impeccable example of fan behaviour at the tournament.

Uruguay's Jose Alberto Batista holds the dubious honour of top spot after being given his marching orders after just 56 seconds at the 1986 tournament.

The second games in Group B happen tonight with Portugal facing Morocco at midnight and surprise table-toppers Iran meeting Spain at 6am.
