Senegal's coach, Aliou Cisse, who captained his side in 2002 to a stunning quarter-final finish, has said he is optimistic of Africa's chances at winning the ultimate prize, despite the dismal start to this year's tournament in Russian Federation.

Senegal will take on Colombia next but those obsessed with cleanliness probably can't wait until their final group game against Japan where both teams will be looking to out polite each other in the stands.
