Many people walked out of the stadium after the opening match of the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM between Qatar and Ecuador, but few of them stayed. In a viral video, Japanese football fans can be seen diligently cleaning the stadiums before leaving.
Omar Al-Farooq, a popular Bahraini YouTuber, released a video on Instagram showing the Japanese audience prepared with huge bags cleaning the stands after the crowd had exited the stadium.
In the video, Omar Farooq can be seen asking them, “why are you doing this? and one of them said we are Japanese, and we do not leave rubbish behind us, and we respect the place.” Many were seen collecting the flags that were dropped at the stadium adding that “these command respect.”
As the video grew in popularity, many people responded by appreciating the Japanese fans, with one saying that such behavior makes you appreciate them even more. Not for the first time, Samurai Blue fans have been reported of similar behavior in numerous places.
