Mexico fans trigger "artificial earthquake" after World Cup goal

Mexico fans trigger

Germany coach Joachim Loew admitted the reigning World Cup champions were made to pay for a poor first half as they slumped to a 1-0 defeat by Mexico on Sunday. Both literally and figuratively.

Natural disaster sensors in Mexico city were triggered by fans jumping in celebration of their team's winning goal against Germany.

The Luzhniki Stadium erupted with noise at around 6pm local time as Mexico's Hirving Lozano scored what would end up being the winning goal.

They took on the cup-holders on Sunday afternoon, and 35 minutes into the game they managed to take the lead. Earlier this month, the USA slapped Mexico with 25 percent steel tariffs and 10 percent aluminum tariffs, as part of the US-led campaign to pressure its neighbors to revise the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Burgers!? Twitter has a big beef over IHOb's concept change
IHOP will remain family-focused, while Applebee's will still be a place to go with friends to get a beer and watch a game. Darren Rebelez, the president of IHOP , explained the re-branding and put restaurant-goers at ease in a statement.

Germany had little answer to Mexico's swashbuckling approach and Werner admits they were good value for all three points.

Germany, who have never failed to reach the knockout stages at a World Cup, will hope to bounce back against Sweden in Sochi on Saturday before they play South Korea in their final match. "In the first half we played very badly".

But Osorio's team has been criticized for some of their performances since qualifying, including a 2-0 loss to Denmark in their final warm-up game, as well as a players' party at the end of their World Cup preparations. "We weren't able to impose our usual way of playing, our attacking and passing was not effective". We had 20 chances, but too many shots were off target.

It was a strike fit to win any match, and Costa Rica could not find a way back into the game.
