Mexico World Cup celebrations trigger natural disaster sensors

Hirving Lozano scoring the lone goal in Mexico's 1-0 victory over reigning World Cup champion Germany appears to have led to an artificial natural disaster in Mexico City on Sunday. Both literally and figuratively.

Jubilant Mexico fans celebrate Lozano's match-winning goal against Germany.

Elated fans waved Mexican flags and donned traditional "sombrero" hats at the iconic Angel of Independence monument in downtown Mexico City as they sang the country's unofficial soccer anthem, "Cielito Lindo", or "Pretty Little Sky", a popular folksong. Considering Germany won it all in 2014, the 1-0 win Sunday from Mexico was impressive to say the least.

Toni Kroos crashed a shot against the crossbar for Germany but they were never able to get back into the match as they slid to their first defeat in their opening game of a World Cup since 1982.

Following Hirving Lozano's goal in the 35th minute, The Institute of Geological and Atmospheric Investigations said highly sensitive quake sensors registered tremors at two sites in the Mexican capital.

Homeland Security chief denies policy separates families at border
The statement concluded, "She believes we need to be a country that follows all laws, but also a country that governs with heart". Under current law, it is not legal to detain whole families who cross the border illegally.


They face South Korea in their second group game on Saturday before their concluding group match against Sweden next week. Germany had also put four past Mexico last summer.

The Swede said he had to report to "different people all with different interests" and that the owners of the professional clubs exerted heavy influence over the national team.

The tremor may have been caused "by mass jumping during Mexico's goal in the World Cup", the Institute of Geologic and Atmospheric Investigations in Mexico said in a tweet. A Mexico win is practically Biblical.

If ever there's a place to enhance your reputation, it's most certainly the World Cup.

In the world of football, we have seen all kinds of charms and supernatural remedies said to inspire or give teams that extra push of fortune to go forth and claim victory.
