Colombia captain wants World Cup team to use past resolve

World Cup 2018 live stream: Colombia vs. Japan start time, TV channel, how to watch online

But their fans instead of celebrating minutes after the game, are responsible for cleaning their sector before retiring.

The 2-1 victory was the first and only African win in the first round of matches, after Egypt, Morocco, Nigeria and Tunisia all lost their opening games.

Japan basked in the afterglow Wednesday of a surprise victory over Colombia in the soccer World Cup, with the top government spokesman praising the Samurai Blue for making a "historic start" to the tournament.

It was the ideal start to their campaign, making Japan the first Asian country to defeat a South American team at a World Cup.

"This is the first time that an Asian team has beaten a South American opponent at the World Cup", Chief Cabinet Secretary Yoshihide Suga said in a press conference at the prime minister's office. And while fans aren't psyched about the own goals, at least some of them are happy to clean up their own mess.

Policymakers in China moved quickly to temper any potential economic drag from Beijing's dispute with the United States. Among big US movers, Intel Corp. fell 3.4 per cent, Visa Inc. fell 3.2 per cent and Boeing Co. fell 2.2 per cent.

Speaking to the BBC, a Japanese sports journalist said that it is a part of Japanese culture.

But rather than being downcast by the loss, to Didier Drogba and co, the Japanese fans armed with Liners patrolled their side of the stadium and gathered up discarded litter.

Japan bested Colombia before Senegal beat Poland in separate Group H matches on Tuesday.

Japan became the first-ever team from Asia to defeat a Southern American squad in a World Cup game, after three draws and 14 defeats. "You often hear people say that football is a reflection of culture".

The gesture wasn't just extended to fans in wheelchairs, either - according to GNN's Russian correspondent, Timofey Yakovets, the sombreros were basically just being given to any person who shared their love for the World Cup. We want to show that all other sporting events, including football in Japan, are also clean.
