The Japanese national team has been hailed as
‘an example for all teams’ after showing a class
of sportsmanship despite their World Cup defeat
by Belgium last night at the Rostov Arena.
They were knocked out of the tournament when a late goal from
Nacer Chadli in the 94th minutes sealed a 3-2 comeback victory
for Belgium.

As revealed by FIFA general coordinator Priscilla Janssens on
Twitter, Japan’s squad left the tournament on a high note. They
left after leaving dressing room spotlessly clean with a note of
thanks in Russian.
Sharing a picture of their spotless post-match dressing room,

Janssens wrote:
‘This is the Japanese dressing room after losing to Belgium in the
94’ minute.
‘Thanked their fans in the stadium, cleaned up everything (bench
and dressingroom) and spoke to media. Even left note with ‘thank
you’ in Russian.
‘What an example for all teams!! Privilege to work with!’
Their fans were also pictured collecting rubbish in the stands after
seeing their side lose to Belgium.
