Historic World Cup goal causes 'earthquake' in Mexico

A fan of Mexico cheers prior to the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia group F match between Germany and Mexico at Luzhniki Stadium on June 17, 2018 in Moscow, Russia. Both literally and figuratively.

Being categorized as an artificial quake, the shake came after Hirving Lozano scored the game-winning goal in the 35th minute of the match.

Mexicans celebrated their momentous World Cup win again Germany so hard they caused an natural disaster, according to officials in the Central American country.

By comparison, the 1985 natural disaster that killed thousands in and around Mexico City was an 8.0 - at least a million times the magnitude of what the celebrating fans may have caused.

During World Cup qualifiers, Federation Internationale de Football Association fined Mexico and a number of other Latin American teams several times over the slurs.

Mexican fans were a bit excited Sunday when their national team beat defending champ Germany 1-0.

Democrats have turned up the pressure over the policy, and some Republicans have joined the chorus of criticism. Naturally, once we "catch and release" illegal immigrants, they are never seen again.

Mexico has a lot to be proud of when it comes to its soccer team now playing in the 2018 World Cup.

Then in the 35th minute, Hirving Lozano latched onto a pass, cut inside and then finished with a low strike past German keeper Manuel Neuer.

Gianluigi Buffon was in the Italy squad for five World Cups from 1998 through 2014, but didn't play in his first tournament. And coming second could well see the four-times champions face the five-times World Cup winners Brazil if the latter win Group E.

"(Osorio) deserves this win the most", said midfielder Rafael Marquez, who is playing at his fifth World Cup.

Marquez played for Barcelona between 2003 and 2010 and plans to retire after the World Cup. Fan celebrations in the area were so pronounced that tremors were detected on a seismograph.
