A Japan fan dressed up as his country’s national flag to go to their World Cup Group H fixture against Colombia, which they won 2-1.

With his face painted red and protruding from the centre of the flag, the supporter looks to be singing passionately in celebration of the surprise result.

Goals from Shinji Kagawa and Yuya Osako secured the win, although their opponents played the majority of the game with ten men after Carlos Sánchez blocked a goal-bound effort with his hand.
