In Mexico early this morning, just about everyone jumped at once when their national team scored a goal that would ultimately see them upset Germany in their first group-stage match at the World Cup.
Here’s the other big result from Hirving Lozano’s strike:

A small earthquake, but an earthquake nonetheless.
Seismic monitoring agency Simmsa said it was caused “possibly by massive jumps during the goal … of Mexico in the World Cup”.
It noted at least two sensors detected the earthquake inside Mexico City at 11.32am local time.
A lot of the jumping was done in Mexico City’s Zocalo Square:

The loss was a huge blow for the Cup favourites, who fudged several attempts on goal and now face possible must-wins against Sweden and South Korea to make it through to the next round.
