Fair play, Senegal fans. That is absolutely class. One of the best displays you'll see at the World Cup by a set of fans.

Coach Aliou Cisse is proud of his players while claiming the whole of Africa is rooting for Senegal.

"Senegal represent the whole African continent," he told reporters via Independent.

"We are Senegal but I can guarantee the whole of Africa is supporting the Senegal team. I get calls and lots of people are proud and we are proud to represent the African continent."

"It's a little bit too early. Winning first match of course means you start at the right pace. The second and third match are also important. I hope Egypt, Nigeria, Tunisia and Morocco will stand up. There is a lot of quality in the other African teams."

How does it compare to Senegal's historic victory against France in 2002?

"Not the same thing, not the same taste. France and Senegal have a history, France colonised Senegal, so when we faced France as opening match, that was quite exceptional.

"Things are different here but this was just as important as the victory we got against France," Cisse added.

Senegal resume their World Cup campaign against Japan on Sunday before facing Colombia.
