Hirving “Chucky” Lozano’s goal in the 35th minute put Mexico up 1-0 against Germany in the opening round of group games in the World Cup. It was a bit of a shock, considering not many people - Mexican fans included - thought El Tri had much of a shot against the defending World Cup champions.
Social media instantly blew up, with the top trending tweets all being related to the match.
But perhaps more impressive was this tweet from SIMMSA - the Mexican Intstitute for Geological and Atmospheric Studies (IIGEA).
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
That’s right. When Mexico scored, the ground in Mexico City literally shook. Two sensors indicated the shaking when the goal was scored, “possibly from massive jumps”.
