Japanese Fans Score Points For World Cup Cleanup after Team Struggles to Score in Loss

Although Japan’s national team could not make an impression on the Ivory Coast’s defense in their 2-1 loss at the 2014 FIFA World Cup, Japanese fans made a huge impression on Brazil by cleaning up the stadium after their disappointing defeat.

According to the Independent, after the game on Saturday Japanese fans policed the area of the stadium that they sat in during the match. They picked up all the discarded litter and put it in large plastic bin liners. Cleaning up around you is customary after sporting events in Japan, however, it was a shock for other fans attending the event at the Arena Pernambuco in Recife.

The tidy Japanese spectators have been praised by hundreds of twitter followers and photos of their class act has spread online.

With the victory for the Ivory Coast, led by 36-year-old former Chelsea star Didier Drogba and Frenchman Sabri Lamouchi in his World Cup coaching debut, they play Columbia next. Japan matches up against Greece. Both matches will be played on Thursday.
