For staying around to clean up after the opening match between Qatar and Ecuador at the 2022 FIFA World Cup on Monday, Japanese football fans have gone viral.
Omar Al-Farooq, a Bahraini YouTuber, highlighted the motivational scene in a video that was posted to Twitter and Instagram. Japanese supporters can be seen cleaning up rubbish that World Cup attendees at the Al Bayt Stadium in Al Khor, Qatar, had left in the stands in the video, which has received over 2.5 million views on Twitter.
After the game between Qatar and Ecuador, the Japanese supporters decided to remain. Following the crowd's departure from the stadium, the spectators began to move about and collect the debris lying on the floor, depositing it into trash bags.
One of the fans responds, "We are Japanese, and we do not leave junk behind us, and we respect the land," when Al-Farooq asks her why she is acting in this way.
Al-Farooq is informed by another supporter that they clean "not for the cameras."
Along with regular rubbish, the Good Samaritans also removed crowd-left flags from the stadium.
Even though their team wasn't playing that day, many social media users praised the Japanese fans' commitment to cleaning the stadium.
"They value respect and teach it to their kids. Therefore, as we can see from this year and past years, the Japanese people act above all others," an Instagram user wrote.
"May the Arabs learn this level of deference and begin cleaning up after themselves rather than waiting for a housekeeper to do the cleaning."
Another user said, "Something I respect so much about Japanese people and their culture."
When they were photographed performing the same kind of deeds following their team's match against Colombia at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia, despite losing to Belgium 3-2, Japanese World Cup supporters also went viral.
Following their team's games, even football supporters from other nations were finally motivated by the touching viral scene to clean up after themselves.
