For Senegal, it also means an opportunity to throw some fire dance parties on the field.
On June 24, the Senegalese national team prepped for a match against Japan with stellar dance moves and heartwarming smiles.
Decked out in red and green — the colors of the nation's flag — the adorable team came together to dance and cheer in preparation for a difficult game against Japan. In a video that's since gone viral, viewers can see the team performing a routine they've done to prep and celebrate victories throughout the game. And the internet fell in love.
Taking place in Russia this year, the World Cup occurs every four years and garners an average viewership of more than 3 billion people. In addition to attracting die-hard soccer fans, the video of the Senegalese team is a simple reminder of why people love this sporting event.
The competition — which includes teams from more than 30 countries — gives people an opportunity to learn about other parts of the world.
From hearing of fans' good luck traditions to historic victory celebrations to seeing folks camped out in watch-party tents decked out in their team's national colors, the World Cup is an incredible reminder of how unique and diverse humanity is.
