Senegal fans praised worldwide for what they did after the Poland victory

Cisse's side were the only team from the continent to win in the opening round of fixtures at Russian Federation 2018, with the other four losing.

Japan and Senegal supporters at the FIFA World Cup in Russian Federation have become a viral hit after they were filmed cleaning up the stadium after their respective matches.

"It is good to see there is a black coach but, beyond football, it shows we have quality coaches".

"I have the certainty that one day an African team, an African country, will win the World Cup", Cisse said. "We face realities that are not there in other continents", he said, referring to infrastructure, budget and organisational problems. Russia, the tournament's host nation, inched closer to advancing to the make-or-break knockout round, by beating Egypt 3 to 1. Tunisia also lost their opening tie to England, falling to a stoppage time Harry Kane victor.

Former Portsmouth midfielder Cisse, 42, believes "it's a bit too early to say" why African sides have had a hard start to the tournament. "We fully trust our football, we have no hang-ups", Cisse added. Becoming the first Asian side to defeat a South American side at a World Cup.

The World Cup is always an opportunity for nations to share their own unique approach to the lovely game, celebration in victory and the grief of defeat.

Thus far, the World Cup has been hard to predict, with some of the best teams falling to underdogs and confounding the experts.

Yet despite those previously positive signs, the fabled prediction by Brazilian World Cup legend Pele that Africa would have a world champion by the turn of the century is now 18 years overdue.
