- Japanese supporters cleaned the stadium after losing to Belgium in Rostov
- The players, on their part, left the dressing room spotlessly clean despite their heartbreaking defeat to Belgium
- The Asian side lost by 3-2 to the Europeans
After Japan's agonising round of 16 loss to Belgium, their squad and their thousands of fans would have been forgiven for leaving the Rostov Arena as quickly as possible.
A late goal from Nacer Chadli sealed a 3-2 comeback victory for Belgium and number of Japan players were left in tears after being knocked out of the tournament.
But, as revealed by FIFA general coordinator Priscilla Janssens on her social media handle, Japan's squad went the extra mile to salute their hosts in Russia as they bowed out.
Sharing a picture of their spotless post-match dressing room, Janssens wrote: "This is the Japanese dressingroom (sic) 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!"
The Asian supporters were also pictured collecting rubbish from the stands moments after watching their side crash out in the most dramatic of circumstances.
Man of the match, Neymar, scored the first goal for the Selecao while substitute, Firmino, extended the lead to keep alive their dreams of winning their sixth World Cup title.
KAMI believes that learning how to behave well despite losing shows a person's maturity and professionalism!
