Mexico are ready to cause a major upset says coach Juan Carlos Osorio

Mexican officials say sensors detected an quake in Mexico City on Sunday morning, and they suggested on Twitter that excited soccer fans may have caused it.

Mexico's astonishing win over Germany has raised hopes that they could finally break a long-running jinx at the World Cup and go beyond the second round.

Mexico had defeated defending champions Germany 1 - 0 in their group stage match, but the actions of their fans may be penalized.

In fact they celebrated their goal so hard that it actually registered as seismic activity in Mexico City.

Mexico's next opponent is South Korea. Magazine Sports Bild commented "There were no world champions to be seen on the pitch" in a damning verdict on the below-par performance.

Mexicans jumping in jubilation on Sunday shook the ground hard enough to set off natural disaster detectors and throngs danced in the streets after their team scored a surprise victory over World Cup defending champion Germany.

"We lacked bravery, self-understanding and trust".


Having been late to almost every ball in their opener against Mexico, it almost seemed fitting that Manuel Neuer was nearly an hour late to Germany's press conference on Tuesday.

The tie was decided by an emphatic strike from PSV Eindhoven's Hirving Lozano, who finished off a swift counter-attack with a cool finish midway through the first-half.

"I feel in great shape for the rest of the tournament", said Marquez, adding about Mexico's victory that "back home no one thought that we could pull this off".

Meanwhile, day four of the World Cup kicked off at the Samara Arena, . with the 23rd ranked Costa Rica taking on Serbia, ranked 34th by Federation Internationale de Football Association.

President Enrique Pena Nieto joined the party, saying on Twitter: "Confirmed: Mexico competes and wins against the best in the world, Congratulations to @miseleccionmx!" We must show what made us strong.

"We came out as a family", he said.

"We have to try to put this behind us as quickly as possible".
