Mexico's World Cup Goal Sparks Seismic Activity

A Mexico soccer fan wearing a sombrero chants as fans gather on Nikolskaya Street ahead of the 2018 soccer World Cup in Moscow Russia Wednesday

Around the 35th minute, winger Hirving Lozano curved one in.

Former Germany captain Philipp Lahm on Monday labelled his country's shock defeat by Mexico as "a minor setback" that could help unite the players in their common goal to defend their World Cup title. The highest it has ever advanced is to the quarter-finals, placing sixth in both 1986 and 1970.

According to the Institute for Geological and Atmospherical investigations, via Yahoo Sports, their monitoring systems detected a seismic current running at 37m/s2 occurring immediately after the goal, speculating that the celebratory "massive jumping" that ensued may have caused the seismic activity.

But Mexican fans in Russian Federation argue it's "normal". "Euphoric fans turned public plazas into giant parties - waving Mexican flags, singing, chanting, spraying foam and drinking". "We have a pessimist culture in Mexico, but we have a tough mentality".

Amid the cacophonous bustle, a veteran violinist played the traditional tune "Cielito Lindo" - roughly translated as "Lovely Sweet One". Auto horns blared, whistles were blown and drums beat for hours after the match.

Paez described the game as a welcome distraction from Mexico's upcoming July 1 presidential election.

"AMLO can be beat".

The Swede said he had to report to "different people all with different interests" and that the owners of the professional clubs exerted heavy influence over the national team.

The story of the travelling Mexican fans and the great lengths they go to support the team stands out.

The Mexican squad entered the 2018 tournament under a cloud of scandal. Marquez denied having any links to drug traffickers.

The street parties are still ongoing Sunday afternoon in Mexico.

As a blog post by SIMMSA researchers explains, even while the ground shakes in these sorts of events, it still only creates a very minor natural disaster compared to actual seismic activity, and generally can only be detected by sensitive equipment, or instruments located near the mass jumping.
