Senegal coach's intense celebrations makes him 'meme of the World Cup'

  • This is the first time as many as four South American nations have failed to win their opening game at a World Cup tournament since

"It's true I'm the only black coach in this World Cup, but really these are debates that disturb me", he told reporters, as quoted by AS.

"We are not too euphoric because we do know there is going to be a hard match against Japan", Senegal coach Aliou Cisse said.

Senegal's coach Aliou Cisse's celebration when his team scored the winning goal against Poland in their World Cup opening game has become an internet sensation. As the tournament has arguably failed to spark into life by the end of the first full week of games, Wednesday's three 1-0s has taken the total of such scorelines up to nine - just three shy of the entire total from Brazil 2014.

They're not alone in promoting clean spectating: Senegalese fans have also been spotted indulging their tidying-up tendencies during this year's competition; the two teams face each other on Sunday, virtually ensuring a spick-and-span stadium afterward. "We are Senegal but I can guarantee the whole of Africa is supporting the Senegal team".

Senegal beat Poland 2-1 on Tuesday and a win against Japan will guarantee them a place in the knock out stages.

The West African country's fans made a decision to tidy up after their 2-1 victory against Poland in the World Cup in Russian Federation yesterday.

Carlos Sanchez was deemed to have handled the ball and was subsequently red carded after just two minutes and 56 seconds - the second quickest sending off in World Cup history - and former Manchester United midfielder Kagawa capitalized from the spot.

If World Cups were won because of the behaviour of a country's fanbase, then Japan and Senegal would make the 2018 final.

According to a translation of the video, the Colombian man filming the Japanese fans can be heard praising the nation's culture and scolding his own people for not following their example.
