Fans of both Senegal and Japan would've been expected to celebrate their nations' wins at the 2018 FIFA World Cup by pouring out onto the streets in celebration.

Just after midday Moscow time, Maluma wrote on social media that he was traveling to the city of Saransk where Colombia was due to play Japan, posting a picture of himself wearing a Colombian soccer jersey in front of a plane.

In the 73rd minute, Yuya Osako netted the victor against Colombia by a header to give Japan their first win of the 2018 world cup.

In their World Cup Group H opener, Poland and Colombia were each defeated 1-2 on Tuesday by Senegal and Japan, respectively, reports Efe.

Then Senegal claimed Africa's first win of this tournament, beating Poland 2-1.

A Thiago Cionek own-goal gave the Lions a first-half lead, which was doubled when M'Baye Niang spun a miscalculated backpass from Gregorz Krychowiak to score.

Juan Quintero's clever low free kick in the 39th minute gave Colombia the equaliser but Yuya Osako leapt above his marker to head a corner into the net for Japan's 73rd-minute victor.

Moments prior to the calamitous exit of the African Pharaohs, Senegal sent African fans into raptures by handing the continent its first victory at this World Cup.

He had three disappointing seasons at Real Madrid and the team eventually loaned him to rival Bayern Munich.

The South Americans thrashed the same opponent 4-1 in the group stage in the 2014 edition in Brazil, so Tuesday's defeat was even more upsetting for Colombia. "We are not too euphoric because we know it will be hard match against Japan".

"What matters is that we still have two games that we will play as if they were finals", Garcia said.

One thing is certain, the entire stadium would be litter free when Japan and Senegal compete against each other on June 24.

"Foreign tourists who have come to support Switzerland called us and said they were looking for a hotel", local police said in a statement on Monday.

The World Cup schedule for Wednesday has three matches.

As far as teams are concerned, David Ospina of Arsenal and Davinson Sanchez of Tottenham will be joining forces to guard the Colombia goal, while Chelsea's Radamel Falcao will lead the line.
