World Cup Fans in Mexico Triggered an Artificial Earthquake Just by Jumping

Alvarez and Rodriguez agreed that if Mexico can maintain this level of play against Sweden and South Korea, it can break its curse and finally reach the quarterfinals of the World Cup in Russian Federation, which it has never done since 1986.

In the first big upset of the tournament, current Cup holders Germany were beaten 1-0 by Mexico in their opening game, cuing scenes of delirium among the travelling Mexican fans.

The story of the travelling Mexican fans and the great lengths they go to support the team stands out. Neither were the sombrero-clad Mexican fans who seemed to be partying nonstop on the streets of Moscow in the days leading up to Sunday's match.

Sunday's match attendance stood at 78,000 people, with Mexican fans accounting for almost half of that number.

A tweet describing an artificial quake in Mexico City, after Mexico scored what would be the game-winning goal in the World Cup upset against Germany, went viral Sunday. "I am convinced we can show and will show a different face against Sweden".

As a player in a World Cup you have to accept pressure. We can not change the result of the game (against Mexico) or of the warm-up games. "He saw the game well", Lozano said in the post-match press conference.

"In the first half we played very badly", Loew said.

"There can always be obstacles to overcome and we need to draw conclusions and be much better in the next match". In 1998, Luis Hernandez had given Mexico the lead in the round of 16 before Jurgen Klinsmann and Oliver Bierhoff scored second-half goals to take Germany to a 2-1 win. "We are going to celebrate it responsibly and we are going to prepare for the next match", Osorio said.

"We weren't able to impose our usual way of playing, our attacking and passing was not effective", he said. "We chose Hirving, who is our fastest player".

After the defeat, Germany's next fixture is on June 23, against Sweden, before they finish the group fixtures against South Korea on June 27.
