Mexicans jumping for joy at their country's surprise World Cup victory over defending champions Germany shook the ground so hard they set off quake detectors, The Independent reports.

"We lost because we weren't decisive enough in our half", said soccer fan Joshua Koodes. Midfielder Marco Fabian encouraged fans to employ different chants and cited concerns that they might not be allowed into Mexico's remaining games in Russian Federation.

Germany had the majority of the possession, but could not find a way through a determined Mexico defence, being undone by a quick counter-attack which left defenders exposed.

Federation Internationale de Football Association said Monday that a "public announcement was prepared" during the game against Germany to warn Mexico fans to stop using the chant, but that they "ceased" before the announcement needed to be made.

The coach instead opted for another 22-year-old attacker, Julian Brandt, who entered late in Sunday's match and blasted a shot just wide of the Mexican goal about two minutes later that had Loew covering his face with his hands.

PSV forward Hirving Lozano grabbed the winning goal as Germany were beaten in the opening game of a World Cup campaign for the first time since 1982.

What was even better was the public reaction to the goal back in Mexico, where millions of people were out watching the game.

They have also not been eliminated at a World Cup group stage since 1938 when the tournament had a different and smaller format.

Mexico's team will advance to play South Korea in its next game Saturday in the Rostov area in Russian Federation.

"Starting out on the right foot was good for us, and there's a long way to go, but we're doing well".
