Fans who came to support their national team remained at the Khalifa International Stadium to pick up garbage before attending the festivities.

This isn’t the first time Samurai Blue fans displayed such a kind gesture. They also helped stadium staff clean up after the opening game between Qatar and Ecuador before doing so again after their loss to Costa Rica.

The Japan national team members also went viral for picking up after themselves following their victory over Germany.

Japan will go up against Croatia in the next round on Monday, with the winner facing the Brazilian team during the quarterfinals.
