Philippine Azkals scores class outside the field


The Philippines lost 0-1 to perennial powerhouse South Korea in an honorable showing, but left a more impressive score outside the field.

A tweet from the Philippine Azkals of a photo of a clean and spotless locker room with a note, "Left an empty stadium with full hearts tonight. Maraming Salamat Dubai!" won the hearts on many.

Some people started calling this as one of the most beautiful moments in this edition of Asian Cup so far.

A winner indeed, and a beautiful sight to behold amidst the viral photos of Filipinos leaving trail of trash in huge events in Manila.


If we could remember, the Japanese football team went viral for doing the same hearty gesture during a loss in a World Cup match last year.


Similarly, the Japanese fans speaks class as they clean up the stadium even after a glorious victory in the World Cup.

May this act of the Azkals and Japan inspire us to also use our platform to create a lasting positive influence. Here's to a hope that other teams follow suit and continue to lead a good example on and off the field.
