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.
