The strange behaviors of Nigerians and Japanese after a football match, explained The Backstory

    • News Commentary

Last month, in March, Nigeria’s Super Eagles hosted Ghana’s Black Stars at the MKO Abiola stadium in Abuja. It was the qualifying round for the World Cup and Nigeria lost. The expected behavior after a football match ends is for everyone to simply leave the stadium. But after last month’s match ended, something strange happened: a crowd of spectators began to trash and vandalize the stadium. A complete opposite but equally strange behavior happened at the 2018 World Cup: Japanese spectators, en masses, cleaned up their trash from the stadium after they lost a match.

One word may explain the strange behaviors of the Japanese and our own: conformity.
