At the DOHA – World Cup, Japanese courtesy was revealed again when the national team left the locker room spotless with an extra touch of courtesy after their incredible 2-1 win against Germany on Wednesday.

As the teams usually leave the locker room in a mess after frenzied celebrations, the Japanese players folded their training vests and left paper cranes on the table as a good precaution.

“4. Following a historic victory against Germany in the #FIFAWorldCup on Match Day, this is how @jfa_samuraiblue (national team) left the locker room at the Khalifa International Stadium as Japanese fans cleaned their stadium garbage. It’s spotless,” world governing body FIFA said with a picture of the immaculate room where the floor also looked like it had been swept.

A thank you note in Arabic and Japanese was also left on the table.

Photos from the 2018 World Cup were shared on social media, where Japan left the locker room spotless with a thank you note in Russian.

Japanese fans also coordinated to clean up their rubbish from the stands at Khalifa Stadium – an attempt witnessed in every match of their national team.
