The fans were filmed on the streets during the day, dancing and chanting their way into the night. The festivities reached their peak when the national team paraded the streets on board of a truck.

On Thursday, Madagascar were eliminated in the 2019 Africa Cup of Nations quarter-final after losing 0:3 to Tunisia.
