Japanese football fans have inspired millions globalwide by being responsible for their own trash, even after winning a heated World Cup match.
Japanese fans certainly had enough reason to go wild on Tuesday night as their side won their opening game, beating Colombia 2-1, and securing the team's first victory against a South American side.
But afterwards, supporters of the "Samurai Blue" also did their share of sweeping: meticulously cleaning up their rows and seats in the stadium, equipped with large rubbish bags.
Their actions are being lauded worldwide in social media.
This is my favourite moment of the World Cup so far; Japan fans picking up litter after their victory vs Columbia. The lessons in life we can take from the game. Why I support ?? #class✅#respect✅#WorldCup pic.twitter.com/FyYLhAGDbi— Christopher McKaig (@Coachmckaig) June 19, 2018
Cleaning up is a part of Japanese culture which is drilled into citizens since childhood. Over time, this becomes a habit, with cleanliness and recycling becoming an integral part of their lives.
