After a stunning win over four-time champion Germany, the Japanese players leave their dressing room spotless

DOHA, Qatar – Japanese courtesy was on full display again at the World Cup when the national team players left their dressing room spotless with an extra touch of kindness after their incredible 2-1 comeback win against Germany on Wednesday, November 23.

While teams often leave the changing room in a messy state after wild celebrations, Japan’s players folded their training vests and, for good measure, left paper cranes on the table.

“After a historic victory against Germany at the on Match Day 4, Japan fans cleaned up their rubbish in the stadium, whilst the @jfa_samuraiblue (national team) left their changing room at Khalifa International Stadium like this. Spotless,” world governing body FIFA said with a picture of the immaculate room, with the floor appeared to have been swept as well.

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

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

Japan fans also coordinated to clean up their rubbish in the stands at the Khalifa Stadium – an initiative witnessed at every game of their national team.
