Watch fans cause mini natural disaster in Mexico City after game-winning goal

Mexican football fans mock Trump at World Cup in Moscow

Marquez first appeared for Mexico at the 2002 World Cup and has since gone on to feature in 2006, 2010, 2014 and now 2018.

German newspaper Die Welt tried to taunt their World Cup opponents with a Donald Trump reference on the front page.

The publication chose to play on the Donald Trump "border wall" fiasco, by reminding the Mexicans of their not-so-friendly neighbours to the north, and also the superior defensive abilities of the world class German side.

The headline reads, "Sorry, Mexico. We already have a wall".

Thomas Muller and other German stars were incredibly frustrated by Mexico.

Hirving Lozano scored the only goal after 35 minutes in Moscow as Germany lost their opening game at a World Cup for the first time in 36 years.

Germany's hiccup has sent Twitter into meltdown, with fans wading into their performance.

By comparison, the 1985 quake that killed thousands in and around Mexico City was an 8.0 - at least a million times the magnitude of what the celebrating fans may have caused.

According to SIMMSA, the seismic monitoring network of the Institute of Geological and Atmospheric Research, tremors were detected in Mexico City during Mexico's World Cup matchup against Germany on Sunday. The winger managed to cut inside before firing low past a diving Manuel Neuer in the Germany goal.

"It's a great result and shows our hard work".

It was a dream start for Mexico.

"It's not about me, it was a collective effort".

"I don't quite understand we played the way we did today, because we had already had a shot across our bow (against Saudi Arabia)".

The victory puts Serbia in a strong early position in Group E ahead of games against Brazil and Switzerland as they look to reach the last 16 for the first time since becoming an independent country.

But experienced goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa shared his coach's optimism, saying his team mates were ready for an upset. "We were not able to impose our usual way of playing", Loew told a news conference.

"In the second half we pressed more but Mexico dropped back and played on the break".
