Mexican Soccer Fans Trigger 'Earthquake' After Historic World Cup Win
The team's upset victory over top-ranked Germany became a seismic event.
Mexico's stunning World Cup victory over top-ranked Germany was certainly a seismic event for soccer fans. But did it really move the earth?
Overjoyed Mexicans jumping after Sunday's upset shook the ground so hard that earthquake detectors were set off in Mexico City, Reuters reported.
The country's Institute of Geological and Atmospheric Investigations said its "highly sensitive earthquake sensors" registered what they called "artificial" quakes in the capital after star player Hirving Lozano scored what would be the game's only goal in the 35th minute.
Germany isn't the only top team suffering early setbacks in the World Cup. As The Associated Press notes, No. 2 Brazil tied with No. 6 Switzerland, No. 4 Portugal tied with 10th-ranked Spain and No. 5 Argentina tied Iceland, a team ranked 22nd in the world.
But back in Mexico, the aftershocks of celebration will likely continue through the week. As Germany licks its wounds, the No. 15 team will go on to face South Korea Saturday in Rostov-on-Don, Russia.
