Mexico's goal trigger artificial earthquake!

Thousands of exuberant Mexican soccer fans celebrated so hard after their nation's team defeated Germany at the World Cup that seismic detectors in Mexico City registered an artificial earthquake.

Mexico's seismic monitoring network, Simmsa, said the vibrations were picked up by at least two sensors when Mexico's Hirving Lozano scored.

In a tweet, Simmsa said the artificial quake may have been generated by "massive jumps" across the city.

Spanish earthquake app, Sismologia Chile, said on Facebook that the coordinated shaking may have led the sensors to interpret the non-natural vibrations as an earthquake.

But this is not the first time revellers have felt the earth move under their feet.
