World Cup 2022: Japan didn’t just clean up the stadium after beating Germany – they left a gift in the dressing room



Japan celebrates a goal during a FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 Group E match between Japan and Germany at Khalifa International Stadium on November 23, 2022 in Doha, Qatar.

Japanese fans have remained in the stadium long after their side’s famous 2022 World Cup victory over Germany yesterday – but not to celebrate. Rather the opposite.

Japanese fans are well known for staying after the game to tidy up the pitch, having done the same at the 2018 World Cup as well. Yesterday was no different despite the euphoria of victory over the Germans, with Blue Samurai fans containing their joy as they soberly picked up the rubbish from the seats at the Khalifa International Stadium.
