You can’t ever accuse Japanese football fans of being sore losers — they stayed behind after their loss to Ivory Coast at the Arena Pernambuco on the weekend to clean up after themselves. They had come prepared with bin bags before the game even kicked off.
Were they punishing themselves for their team missing out on the victory? Nope — cleaning up after a sporting event is customary in Japan, whether you’re attending at home or away. Japanese fans don’t boo the opposition, either. 100% respectful vibes all the way.
Will other nations in Brazil this Summer follow their lead? Doubtful, but these chaps won’t hold it against you.
