Mexico shocked Germany in their first game of FIFA World Cup 2018 with a 1-0 win on June 17. Apparently, Hirving Lazano’s opening goal in the 35th minute led to such a huge celebration in Mexico that it caused an artificial earthquake. The sensors in Mexico City detected seismic activities twice during the clash between Mexico and Germany.
The Institute for Geological and Atmospherical Investigations tweeted the seismographic readings, highlighting the spike when Mexicans celebrated Lazano’s pivotal goal against Germany.
Here are a few tweets which show the proof of tremors in Mexico City —

Try to build that wall, darling. We’ll just cause earthquakes.
“Officials in Mexico said an “artificial quake” was reported in Mexico City that was possibly caused by “massive jumps during the goal from the Mexico national soccer team” on Sunday.” https://t.co/BB9JejKVDb

So an artificial earthquake occurred in Mexico City after the Mexican team scored their first goal against Germany in the #WorldCup.
We should plan something similar when India and Pakistan meet in the next cricket World Cup. pic.twitter.com/4XJBCoXqfW

Soccer fans celebrating in Mexico may have caused an artificial earthquake — meanwhile a ceiling fan may have caused an artificial disaster on Trump’s head. #WorldCup2018 #GERvsMEX #GermanyvsMexico #trumpshair #sad pic.twitter.com/R7arkgbP0n

Mexico will now go up against South Korea and Sweden on June 23 and June 27 respectively. They will be high on confidence after a scintillating win over the defending champions.
P.S.: It may sound far-fetched but we are still wondering what will happen if Mexico actually manages to lift the trophy?
