Morocco fan joins in with Senegal supporters dancing in the stands, it's what football is all about

A Morocco fan has gone viral on social media after he joined in with the Senegal supporters dancing in the stands of their World Cup match against Ecuador.

Senegal booked their place in the next round of the tournament after beating Ecuador 2-1 at the Khalifa International Stadium on Tuesday.

Watford's Ismaila Sarr opened the scoring from the spot, with Brighton's Moises Caicedo levelling proceedings.

But Senegal regained the lead when Chelsea's Kalidou Koulibaly produced a brilliant side-footed finish in the 70th minute.

However, Koulibaly's strike wasn't the moment of the match as a supporter in the stands attracted plenty of attention on social media.

In the 82nd, the camera panned to the crowd and showed a Morocco fan amongst the Senegal supporters.

He joined in with the Senegalese' choreographed dance in a wholesome moment.

Needless to say, the interaction between the Morocco fan and the Senegal supporters got fans online talking.

One Twitter user wrote: "This is what football represents."

A second tweeted: "African fans are the best at this World Cup."

A third added: "This is so beautiful."

Another commented: "Beautiful to see...#TeamAfrica."
