|Hirving Lozano and Mexico captain Guardado celebrates goal against Germany|
If we are to take Mexico's government for their word, the 2018 World Cup is shaking the planet.
Hirving Lozano shocked Germany as he scored the only goal in Mexico’s opening match in Russia against a poor Joachim Low’s side on Sunday afternoon.
Mexico’s supporters inside the Luzhniki Stadium were sent into a euphoria and fans back at home also went absolutely crazy as their side scored against the champions
Amazingly, Mexico are reporting that ‘mass jumping’ after Lozano’s strike caused a small earthquake in the country capital. It was confirmed that Tiny tremors occurred immediately after Lozano’s goal in Moscow.
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
‘The Seismometer detected in Mexico City originated artificially,’ the Mexican government confirmed.
‘Possibly by massive jumps during Mexico’s goal at the World Cup. At least two sensors inside the city detected it at 11:32.’
Mexico Coach Juan Carlos Osorio was optimistic before the match, he believed his players could compete with Germany.
‘We can compete with them. We think we have a good chance to match up against the best team in world football and go head-to-head against them,’ he said.
‘I completely believe in my players and I believe that with the midfielders we have we can dispute the possession.
‘We have to respect the opponent, but … we will not change our idea of playing. We’ll always go toe-to-toe.’
