Mexico's Rafael Marquez clashes with Germany's Marco Reus during the group F match between Germany and Mexico at the 2018 soccer World Cup in the Luzhniki Stadium in Moscow, Russia, Sunday, June 17, 2018.

At that exact time, halfway around the world in Mexico City, the goal caused such fervent celebration that it seems to have caused the ground to shake.

Fans of Germany in the Moscow Fan Zone watching their team losing in the FIFA World Cup 2018 match between Germany and Mexico, Moscow, Russia.

Mexican fans were a bit excited Sunday when their national team beat defending champ Germany 1-0.

In the world of football, we have seen all kinds of charms and supernatural remedies said to inspire or give teams that extra push of fortune to go forth and claim victory. 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.

Understandably, plenty of people in Mexico City, their eyes glued to giant television screens in squares and public parks, went bananas.

"I put it down to stress, first match nerves, that's true for me too", the Brazil boss said. "We are our own toughest critics and we are disappointed and angry over our performance against Mexico".

A source within the FMF told ESPN Mexico's Rene Tovar the federation is expecting a fine of 500,000 pesos ($24,000) for the chant's use against Germany.

"The team has experience dealing with losses".

"In the first half we played very badly".

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

Die Mannschaft was slammed by the German media for a awful first-half performance when their defence was brutally ripped apart by Mexico's counter attacks. Therefore, the logical effect would be that he no longer plays against Sweden, as they will similarly do that.
