The amazing goal by Hirving "Chucky" Lozano at the 2018 World Cup in Russia brought so much joy to the Mexicans that they literally made Mexico City tremble. Here's a refresher of Sunday's game against Germany:

Through Twitter, the Department of Seismology and Volcanism of the Institute of Geological and Atmospheric Research A.C. reported that during the goal that gave the victory to the Mexican national team against Germany, an earthquake was recorded artificially.
They later explained that the quake was possibly caused by the "massive jumps" of Mexicans celebrating. "The earthquake detected in Mexico City originated artificially. Possibly by massive jumps during the goal of the Mexican national team in the world cup. At least two sensors inside the City detected it at 11:32."

A Mexican agency that detects earthquakes reported on Sunday seismic activity was detected in Mexico City, roughly at the same time Mexico's national soccer team scored an improbable game-winning goal against Germany in the World Cup. https://t.co/x1GNnonriM— Fox 4 News (@Fox4Now) June 17, 2018
Yes, it's possible that the celebrations had a thing or two to do with the "artificial earthquake." Just check out some of the videos below:

Given everything that's going on these days, I am whole-heartedly throwing my support behind Mexico at this world cup. Let's have some more earthquakes. https://t.co/YiEbO0HjvW— Adam Gidwitz (@AdamGidwitz) June 18, 2018
