The football-mad nation of Mexico may have caused a small artificial earthquake during their shock win over Germany at the FIFA World Cup on Sunday.
Chucky Lozano would score the only goal of the match in the 34th minute in Moscow, cuing bedlam back home in Mexico City.

At a fan park in Zocalo, this was the reaction to the opening goal. This was no doubt just a small portion of the 123 million strong population celebrating…

Apparently, the ruckus was enough to be picked up on a seismograph!
Here’s the explanation about the fan-induced “artificial earthquake” in Mexico City. “These types of events do not damage the subsoil, since they are micro-recordings that are only observable in a very small number of seismographs.” https://t.co/KrD2J0u4mN
