Japanese fans clean stadium after losing against Ivory Coast

Japanese fans who watched their team be defeated by the Ivory Coast in the World Cup on Saturday showed it is possible to lose graciously, when they stayed behind after the match to help clean up. Despite seeing the Blue Samurais lose, Japanese spectators armed with bin liners patrolled their side of the stadium and gathered up discarded litter. While gathering waste after a sporting event is customary in Japan, the spectators’ actions came as a shock to soccer fans from other countries.

Super-rare 1989 Luton Town third shirt. Worn for just one or two games in the 1989 season, where the white or blue strips clashed (so basically Sheffield Wednesday or QPR). This pre-dates the umbro issued orange strip. Never replicated for consumer use so the match issue shirts are the only one's in existance.
