The Mexican fans were a little upset on Sunday when their national team beat defending champions Germany 1-0 . How excited? So excited that apparently the whole country jumped at once and seismic sensors in Mexico City noticed a small earthquake.

In a tweet, the Institute of Geological and Atmospheric Investigations in Mexico noted that at least two sensors were registering the quake, and it was caused artificially, "possibly by massive jumps" when Mexico's Hirving Lozano scored the only goal of the game.

Some did not seem to believe the event, and many wondered why no value was given in the tweet, usually listed with earthquake. Institute Director Carlos Del Ángel told BuzzFeed News that the event resembled a magnitude 3 earthquake

On his blog the Institute noted that the event would have gone unnoticed by ordinary people, although seismic monitors have still discovered it.

"We know that in different parts of the city, where there were more people, and when all people jumped at the same time, we could choose this movement with multiple monitors we have in Mexico City," said Del Ángel Buzzfeed.

Jumping was not all Mexican fans after the victory.

"For hours after the game, Mexico City echoed with the joyous cacophony of car horns" reports the New York Times . "Euphoric fans turned public places into huge parties – waved Mexican flags, sang, sang, sprayed foam and drank."

Fans should stop betting until Wednesday when the Mexican team plays again and plays Sweden.
