Mexico's World Cup goal against Germany may have triggered 'artificial earthquake'

Aleksandar Kolarov scores

Their team played a great game however, and congrats to them.

Serbia and Costa Rica traded chances in the first half.

Our Lee Seung-jae has the rundown of all the action starting with the day's big shocker: Germany versus Mexico.

Mexico would hold on to win the match 1-0, sending them to the top of Group F ahead of matches against Sweden and South Korea. "The mindset [against Mexico] was right, but we didn't get into the game properly and were then on the back foot".

For defending World Cup champions, however, the situation is more common.

Serbia had dominated against a Costa Rica side who had rarely threatened after a bright start, but chances were thin on the ground until Kolarov made the breakthrough in the 56th minute.

Mexico's World Cup goal against Germany may have triggered 'artificial earthquake'

According to SIMMSA, the seismic monitoring network of the Institute of Geological and Atmospheric Research, tremors were detected in Mexico City during Mexico's World Cup matchup against Germany on Sunday. The goal decided the match - a match Germany didn't expect to lose. It was also the second defeat in an opening match at the World Cup finals for Germany.

"What happened today was an natural disaster of joy for us - just imagine, we beat the world champions!" said Laura Villegas, a 45-year-old merchant who downed her beer with tequila in one gulp. "They competed very well and they defended with their lives".

Bayern Munich's Hummels was equally forthright in terms of what the four-time tournament winners had to do next after what he felt was an under-par performance in the Russian capital.

The Ticos are hoping to improve on their finish at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, where they advanced to the quarterfinals.

It was not supposed to go this way. Brazil was expected to breeze through this group with nine points and after former Liverpool maestro Coutinho scored a attractive golazo in the 20th minute, three points seemed assured.

However, Brazil was never able to get out of first gear and they were duly punished in the 50th minute. Steven Zuber crushed home a header after pushing his marker Miranda, out of the way.
