Jumping Soccer Fans Triggered a Small Earthquake in Mexico

"As proceedings are ongoing please understand we can not comment further at this stage", Federation Internationale de Football Association said in a statement.

Mexico caused arguably the biggest upset of the World Cup so far when they handed reigning champion Germany a 1-0 overnight, and didn't their fans love it.

"We lacked courage, identity, and confidence against Mexico", Neuer said.

"I don't quite understand why we played the way we did today, because we had already had a shot across our bow (against Saudi Arabia)".

"The #sismo detected in Mexico City originated artificially", the organisation posted on social media.

The elderly woman, plate of food in hand, crossed each player, blessing them once and finally blessed goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa three times.

Hummels felt Germany did not heed the warning of their final warm-up friendly against Saudi Arabia that ended in a tight 2-1 win, their only success in seven matches since the end of the World Cup qualifying campaign previous year.


"I feel in great shape for the rest of the tournament", said Marquez, adding about Mexico's victory that "back home no one thought that we could pull this off".

And when the young PSG talent turned Hummels in with a touch of grace in the 35 minute Germany had been left completely exposed at the back with Neuer at his mercy.

After the defeat, Germany's next fixture is on June 23, against Sweden, before they finish the group fixtures against South Korea on June 27. "It's nice to hear "Cielito Lindo" and the shout of 'Mexico.' We should [try to] avoid punishments".

Perhaps that's still true, but statements were definitely made about both teams here. "We will show that in the next match against Sweden". Therefore, the logical outcome would be that he no longer plays against Sweden, as they will similarly do that.

Mexico's goalscoring hero Hirving Lozano has been backed to play in the Premier League by manager Juan Carlos Osorio.

Germany coach Joachim Loew did not mince his words about his side's performance, saying his team had played "very badly" in the first half of the Group F tie.
