Croatian fans cause mini-earthquakes while cheering for their team

By  Jul 12, 2018

When Croatia won England in the semi-finals of the World Cup, everything was shaking – literally. The Geophysical Department of the Faculty of Science (PMF), University of Zagreb on its Facebook page has released an interesting fact – Croatian fans shook the ground while cheering!! 

As they write, the PMF's seismological stations have reported stronger ground rupture yesterday, especially two times, at 10.20 and 10.37 pm.

The first time of the mini-earthquake matches the time when Mario Mandzukic scored a goal that took Croatia to the final and to the other when Turkish referee Cüneyt Çakır marked the end of the match. The Croatian fans started to jump and shook the whole country – all night long.
