The fair play award should go to the fans of Group H.
Every 4 years we see great feats of humanity on the pitch, going the extra mile to bring glory to their countries. We shouldn’t just keep our eyes on the pitch as developments on the stands have also brought smiles and inspiration to fans worldwide.
Japanese fans always clean up
Japan, a country known for its courtesy and cleanliess, have been infamous for their supporters’ efforts in cleaning up after themselves at the end of the match. This year is no different as this video shows.

The same happened 4 years ago in Brazil when they handed out blue bags to pick up the trash.
Senegal fans are also cleaning up the stadium
It seems that fellow Group H supporters from Senegal have also been inspired by the Japanese and were spotted clearing the post-match rubbish after the win against Poland.
Senegal fans cleaning their section inside the ground today is by far the best thing you’ll see today, great show of respect. ???????? pic.twitter.com/qsJGUhzlX0

If there was a World Cup of the world’s greatest fans, Japan and Senegal would be duking it out right now in the finals. May we see more great moments of humanity in Russia this month.
