Mexicans jubilant over World Cup win trigger earthquake sensors

Juan Carlos Osorio Mexico 06212017

The Mexican government reported an artificial quake "possibly due to mass jumping" after the first-half goal during the 35th minute of the 2018 World Cup game against Germany, the defending World Cup champion.

The Germans are bidding to become the first team to retain the World Cup title since Brazil in 1962.

Low now has plenty of issues to address heading into a meeting with Sweden next weekend, with Germany requiring a marked improvement if they are to avoid suffering an early departure.

"Everybody is really unhappy and crestfallen but we have to put this behind us", Low said afterwards.

"In the second half, we were able to press more, but Mexico drew back and then carried the ball forward fast".

Mexico found themselves in this year's World Cup's "Group Of Death", alongside Sweden, South Korea, and reigning champions Germany. That set the tone for Mexico to torment Germany on the counterattack, with Lozano taking full advantage of right back Joshua Kimmich's tendency to go forward.


A shaky warm-up campaign had called into question the dominant form the Germans showed in qualifying, but experience and records were on their side, having won every opening game at major tournaments since Joachim Loew took over as coach in 2006. "We need to see what caused this".

Costa Rica is facing a much harder battle to get through, with Brazil their next game, it seems unlikely that Costa Rica will be able to match their 2014 World Cup performance this time around.

It may sound unusual to suggest but was Germany too offensive early on against Mexico and too willing to play a high line?

The FIFA World Cup - the planet's greatest sporting event - kicked off on Thursday in Moscow's Luzhniki Stadium, with the host nation, Russia, beating Saudi Arabia 5-0, while Uruguay was better than Egypt (1-0) in Russia's Group A. He has tinkered with his lineups constantly.

"We had drawn up a plan six months back or so". "We did not cover the spaces, we did not play our usual attacking game, we lost possession too often and so had to cover big distances, so the Mexicans had space to counter-attack", he said. "We chose Hirving, who is our fastest player".
