Mexican footballer Irving Lozano scored his goal into the gate of the German national team and not only “plunged” the world champions, but also almost “destroyed” his own capital – Mexico City.
World mass media replicated the report of the Institute of Geological and Atmospheric Research of Mexico that at the time of Lozano’s goal in Moscow, in Mexico City, instruments recorded an earthquake of an artificial nature.
The Institute suggests that “perhaps it is a matter of massive leaps after the goal of the Mexican national team at the 2018 World Cup.”
Here it should be taken into account that the population of Mexico City exceeds 20 million people. And the expressive Mexicans are “a little more emotional” for their idols, than, say, the inhabitants of Oslo, Stockholm or Helsinki.
And of course, here we must take into account the power of football itself, as the most massive sport. I think that hockey or chess, for all the greatness of these sports, will never be able to create an earthquake.
