DOHA. – Japan’s players created a huge impression on the pitch at the World Cup when they stunned Germany in their opening game.

And they left positive vibes off it as well by leaving their dressing room absolutely spotless at the Khalifa International Stadium.

Pictures shared on social media showed the floors swept, litter sorted into neat piles and even windows left open for ventilation in the Japan locker room after their 2-1 win.

In a delightful touch, the Japan players and staff also left Origami swans and a thank you note in Japanese and Arabic.

The Japanese fans in Qatar also left a positive impression, picking up litter that had been left in the stands even as they celebrated a famous win.

Supporters in the country’s blue colours grabbed waste bags and began sweeping up discarded bottles and food wrappers in a show of respect.

It led to social media jokes that Japan had well and truly ‘cleaned up’ on and off the pitch against Germany.

Neither gesture is anything new to the Japanese, however.

A small group of their fans stayed behind after the opening World Cup game between Qatar and Ecuador to tidy up, to the astonishment of their hosts.

Pictures were also shared of spotless Japan dressing rooms at the 2018 World Cup in Russia and the 2019 Asian Cup, also held in Qatar. – Mailonline.
