Mexicans jubilant over World Cup win trigger 'artificial' earthquake

A grandmother who blessed every Mexican player as they appeared on screen before a World Cup clash with Germany has been credited with her side's surprise victory. "The team has enough experience to deal with it and we will rise again".

"We were warned days ago (in the warm-up games)".

(FromL) Mexico's defender Hector Moreno, Mexico's goalkeeper Alfredo Talavera, Mexico's forward Carlos Vela, Mexico's midfielder Rafael Marquez and Mexico's defender Erick Gutierrez celebrate their 1-0 victory at the end of the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup Group F football match between Germany and Mexico at the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow on June 17, 2018.

If Germany finish as group runners-up, they could face Brazil in a clash of World Cup titans in the next round - a ideal chance for the Brazilians to avenge the humiliating 7-1 defeat to the Germans on home soil in 2014. And by scoring the winning goal of his team, Hirving Lozano has literally shaken his country.

Alvarez and Rodriguez agreed that if Mexico can maintain this level of play against Sweden and South Korea, it can break its curse and finally reach the quarterfinals of the World Cup in Russian Federation, which it has never done since 1986.

"It's definitely the best goal I've ever scored so far in my entire life", the 22-year-old Lozano said.

Germany must now worry about a similar outcome to their title defence and Sunday's defeat was their first opening day World Cup loss since Algeria claimed a shock win in 1982.

At least two of its sensors inside Mexico City detected a seismic movement during the World Cup match, "most likely produced by the massive celebration", according to the institute's blog post.

They have also not been eliminated at a World Cup group stage since 1938 when the tournament had a different and smaller format.

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

"It's disappointing to have lost the first match".

"One thing I will not be doing is think about the round of 16".

"We have actually been saying that for the last 10, 15 years, I would say". "We will make it".
