Countless exuberant Mexican soccer fans took to the streets Sunday to cheer their national group's long-shot win against Germany in Mexico's very first match of the 2018 World Cup soccer competition.
The 1-0 stunner, with Hirving Lozano scoring the winning objective, has given Mexicans hope that their group may win the tournament for the very first time ever. Mexico has actually completed in the FIFA World Cup because the sporting occasion started in 1930. The greatest it has ever advanced is to the quarter-finals, positioning 6th in both 1986 and 1970.
Lozano's goal triggered such a turmoil that seismic detectors in Mexico City signed up a false earthquake, which the geological institute stated may have been produced by "massive dives" across the city. Viewers who had collected to watch the match on a big TELEVISION screen in the main Zocalo square screamed with pleasure after ball game.
After the match, crowds of fans worn green converged around the iconic Angel of Independence monolith, bouncing with delight and waving the Mexican flag. Small groups shouted "Mexico" and "Yes we could!" Some burglarized tune, including the conventional Cielito Lindo tune best understood for its "Ay, Ay, Ay, Ay" chorus. Car horns roared, whistles were blown and drums beat for hours after the match.2018 World
