WATCH: Fans in Mexico celebrated their win over Germany so hard that it caused a small earthquake

You know you've partied hard when you cause a Richter Scale reaction.

Mexico found themselves in this year's World Cup's 'Group Of Death', alongside Sweden, South Korea, and reigning champions Germany.

They took on the cup-holders on Sunday afternoon, and 35 minutes into the game they managed to take the lead.

Even better, they managed to maintain that lead for the rest of the game, which is quite the result for their first game.

What was even better was the public reaction to the goal back in Mexico, where millions of people were out watching the game. Here is footage from Mexico City when their team scored the goal:

Quite the celebration.

And did you notice the camera shaking a little near the start of the video? Well, you weren't alone, as the country's seismological centre also picked up on that:

Translated, it says:

"The #sismo detected in Mexico City originated artificially. Possibly by massive jumps during the Goal of the selection of #Mexico in the world. At least two sensors inside the City detected it at 11:32."

Yep. Mexico partied so hard that it was picked up as a small earthquake.

Their next game is against South Korea on Saturday 23 June, and then against Sweden on Wednesday 27 June.

Keep an eye on the tectonic plates shifting on both of those days.
