World Cup goal celebrations trigger earthquake in Mexico City

An earthquake was detected in Mexico City due to mass celebrations when the national team opened the scoring against defending champions Germany in their first match of the 2018 FIFA World Cup on Sunday. The Mexican government said a small artificial earthquake was registered “possibly due to mass jumping” when Hirving Lozano scored in the 35th minute, securing Mexico’s win.

While the celebrations probably weren’t the cause of the earthquake, it’s fair to say this was an earth-shaking result.

This World Cup has gotten off to a tremendous start.
