World Cup goal celebrations ‘cause earthquake’ in Mexico City

There was an increase in seismic activity at exactly the moment Lozano scored

The goal sparked mass celebrations among the thousands in the stadium in Moscow and the millions watching back home. Mexico went on to win the game in a memorable encounter in Moscow to get their World Cup campaign off to the perfect start.

Tremor

Striker Lozano emphatically finished a sweeping team move in the 35th minute of the game at Luzhniki Stadium, and the Mexican team held on despite strong German pressure to claim a win of seismic proportions.

The Germans had been strong favorites going into the encounter, having beaten Mexico 4-1 in Sochi in last year’s Confederations Cup semi-finals.

However, Juan Carlos Osorio’s team were worthy winners this time around as they produced a performance of creativity and grit to send the thousands of Mexico fans packed into Luzhniki into raptures.

Carnival

The Mexican fans have helped turn the Russian capital into a carnival atmosphere in recent days, taking to the streets en mass and at games involving other teams.

Prior to Sunday’s game they had continued that trend with some lively chanting as they assembled on the way to the match.
