Japan vs Croatia was a crucial match for the team to qualify for the next level, and Maya Yoshida's team couldn't make it ahead. After losing 3-1 on penalties against Croatia in the round of 16 on Monday, Japan got eliminated from the FIFA World Cup 2022.

During their exit from the football tournament, they marked goodbye in their style - origami art, and a gentle gratitude note to the match host. Japanese players left the dressing room with a "Thank You" note penned in both Japenese and Arabic, along with a few origami-based cranes.


Also, this isn't the initial time that the national team has expressed gratitude in such a manner. Days ago, when Yoshida and his players were on the grounds to goal against Germany, they not only made headlines for cleaning the stadium but also left their mark with origami art and a thanks note.
