Mexico's World Cup celebrations shook the world
Mexico's seismic celebrations of their win over Germany literally shook the earth.
Hirving Lozano was the hero as they beat the World Champions Germany 1-0 in their opening group game.
Mexico's seismic monitoring network, Simmsa, said sensors picked up vibrations so strong they thought it was an earthquake
The quake was generated by Mexicans jumping for joy when they got the goal and again at the full time whistle, the company said in a tweet:
El #sismo detectado en la Ciudad de México se originó de manera artificial. Posiblemente por saltos masivos durante el Gol de la selección de #México en el mundial. Por lo menos dos sensores dentro de la Ciudad lo detectaron a las 11:32. pic.twitter.com/mACKesab3b— SIMMSA (@SIMMSAmex) June 17, 2018
