The type of loss Japan suffered in the FIFA World Cup at the utmost time is really heartbreaking. But Japan fans didn’t fail to maintain the wonderful habit of cleaning with the stadium. The Japan side was 2-0 up after 52 minutes it was then Belgium made an amazing comeback and won 3-2 accompanied with the last kick of the match to secure their place in the quarterfinals against Brazil.
Although this was the grand World cup and the fans of Japan were really devastated by their defeat but this didn’t stop them from cleaning the mess at Rostov Aren. Usually, after losing the World Cup fans are pissed off and don’t bother about anything especially cleaning the mess.
But these Japanese fans continued their clean-up habit just like they did in the match with Columbia in the World cup, produces some hope.
Japan supporters had also made sure they kept the stadium clean at the 2014 World Cup when after the match they stayed behind to collect the waste following a match against the Ivory Coast.
The climax was so brilliant. Roberto Martinez’s Belgium won 3-2 after it appeared like they were losing the match when they were drafted 2-0 initial in the second half.
But they made an amazing comeback with goals from Jan Vertonghen, Marouane Fellaini and Nacer Chadli’s 94th-minute winner. The final team to come back from two goals down to win a World Cup knockout round match were Germany against England in 1970.
After no goals in the initial half, we’d be lying if we said we had high pitched hopes for a thrilling game but things took an unbelievable turn. Three minutes into the second half, Genki Haraguchi scored, taking Japan into the lead.
Japan scored again, this time through Takashi Inui, who shattered it in from 25 yards to give his team a 2-0 lead. It looked like joyful days for Japan but Belgium, who are among the best for the match, had other ideas.
The act of these Japan fans cleaning up the stadium is a wonderful example to all the people out there. We wish that this tradition catches on with other nations as well.
Nothing can make this FIFA World Cup better with classy fans, incredible football, and exciting results.
