Senegal fans went into a frenzy of song and celebration to the extent that concerned police officers conducted a sweep just to ensure that all was well.
In a tweet by BBC journalist Piers Edwards seen by TUKO.co.ke, police were searching the rooms of Senegalese fans in an apparent attempt to find out why they were dancing too much.
"Despite Senegalese fans bringing real colour to Moscow, the police are currently searching all their rooms - supposedly to find out why the fans are dancing so much," Edwards said.
The security sweep was done with a police dog in tow possibly in search of dangerous substances or other hidden objects that may pose a threat to fans in attendance of the global tournament.
"I kid you not. A sweep is going on right now, with a police dog in tow," the BBC presenter said.
Earlier, TUKO.co.ke reported that Senegal fans performed a stylish act at Moscow taking full responsibility to clean up their section of the 45,360-capacity Spartak Stadium.
The supporters’ impressive act is currently trending on social media after they went the extra mile of cleaning up after their victory against Poland on Tuesday, June 19.
