Yesterday Mexico played and won against Germany during the first rounds of the FIFA World Cup. A minor earthquake was detected just after Mexico scored. According to SIMMSA which monitors seismic activity, the quake was likely caused by “massive” jumping directly after Hirving Lozano scored the winning goal.
Incredibly, this isn’t the first time this has happened – apparently artificial quakes were also recorded in Peru when the country qualified for the cup and also in Iceland when the team scored against Argentina.
Absolutely amazing – sport really does bring people together in colossal ways.
El #sismo detectado en la Ciudad de México se originó de manera artificial. Posiblemente por saltos masivos durante el Gol de la selección de #México en el mundial. Por lo menos dos sensores dentro de la Ciudad lo detectaron a las 11:32. pic.twitter.com/mACKesab3b
