sports: SEISMIC SHOCK World Cup winner against Germany causes ‘artificial earthquake’ in Mexico after wild celebrations
Mexico’s winner against Germany at the World Cup caused a minor earthquake after fans in the country celebrated a little too hard.
Hirving Lozano’s winner against the World Cup holders sparked wild reactions from fans in Mexico City which actually caused a large amount of seismic activity.
Despite going into the match as underdogs, Mexico deserved their victory and could have won by a more emphatic margin if their finishing had been more clinical.
PSV Eindhoven winger Lozano took his time to score, cutting inside when in the box before rifling a low shot past Manuel Neuer at the near post.
And the celebrations caused an ‘artificial earthquke’ according to seismologists.
SIMMSA – the body monitoring and analysing seismic activity in Mexico tweeted: “Earthquake detected in Mexico City during the goal by the national team in the World.
It later added: “The earthquake detected in Mexico City originated artificially. Possibly by massive jumps during the goal of the Mexico team in the World Cup. At least two sensors inside the City detected it.”
Mexico’s match-winner Lozano said: “It’s one of the biggest wins in Mexico’s history, for sure and it’s the best goal I’ve scored in my life.
“We all dream of playing in a World Cup and to start in such a positive and important way – I think it’s my best goal by far.”
