Japanese Fans Clean Up Rubbish In Stadium After Women's World Cup Win Over Scotland

Japanese Fans Clean Up Rubbish In Stadium After Women's World Cup Win Over Scotland

Japan fans have showed their class yet again after some supporters cleaned up rubbish at Roazhon Park following their side's 2-1 defeat of Scotland in Group D of the Women's World Cup.

First half goals from Mana Iwabuchi and and Yuika Sugasawa was enough to beat the Scots, who notched a late consolation through Lana Celland's late screamer.

And after the victory, BBC cameras panned to Japan fans who went out of their way to keep the stadium tidy by collecting rubbish and placing it in bags.

An unbelievably selfless gesture. But this isn't the first time that the Japanese have done this at a World Cup. Last year, after suffering a heartbreaking loss in the final seconds of their World Cup last-16 match against Belgium, Japan supporters ensured their area of the ground was spotless before they left.

Senegal fans also joined in with the tradition when they cleaned up their section inside the stadium before leaving the ground after victory against Poland.

Both countries were nominated for the FIFA Fan Award after their display of 'dedication' and 'passion'.

On FIFA's official website, they said the following about Japan and Senegal fans:

"While dedication and passion were clear for all to see when fans of Japan and Senegal brought noise and colour to Russia 2018, they also went beyond the call of duty as fans. Showing unrivaled respect for fellow supporters and their hosts, the images of them cleaning stadiums after their team's games drew huge praise from onlookers worldwide."
