In the 2022 FIFA World Cup group stage encounter on Wednesday in Qatar, Japan earned a historic first-ever victory over Germany. Besides earning accolades worldwide for their prowess on the field, the Japanese national team won over the internet for an amazing gesture. After defeating Germany, the Japanese footballers cleaned their locker area and left it spotless rather than only celebrating their triumph.
“After a historic victory against Germany at the #FIFAWorldCup on Match Day 4, Japan fans cleaned up their rubbish in the stadium, whilst the @jfa_samuraiblue left their changing room at Khalifa International Stadium like this. Spotless.” – FIFA tweeted with a photo of the locker room.
