Mexico Celebrations Set Off Earthquake Detectors After Victory Over Germany

Mexico Celebrations Set Off Earthquake Detectors After Victory Over Germany
By Maurice Brosnan Updated

The defending Champions Germany suffered a shock defeat against Mexico in their opening game of the World Cup group F campaign and the people of Mexico certainly enjoyed it, if the reaction in Mexico City was anything to go by.

Mexico were full value for their win and it was Hirving Lozano who made the difference, his first-half strike earning them a 1-0 victory.

According to SIMMSA, a seismic monitoring network, the subsequent "massive jumps" created an 'artificial' earthquake in the city.

Coming into the tournament the pressure was on Juan Carlos Osorio's side, who were booed by Mexican fans during their last warm-up game so the result will go some way toward appeasing them. They take on South Korea next and look likely to progress from the group after today's result.
