Euro 2012: Lego Recreations of the Tournament’s Greatest Moments

Have you been watching the 2012 European Championships? Yeah, me neither. But hey, this might pique your interest: a teenage football fan from Scotland has celebrated the (apparently very exciting) sports event by recreating some of the most memorable moments from past tournaments – in Lego! 18-year-old Graham Love spent four weeks painstakingly manipulating pint-sized plastic figures to make the stop-motion video, which he uploaded onto YouTube and which has went down a storm.

If you’re a footy fan, you may recognise some of the famous scenes receiving the Lego treatment in Love’s video: Cristiano Ronaldo weeping at Portugal’s Euro 2004 loss, for example, as well as David Trezeguet winning the tournament for France in 2000. He also leaves a question mark open for England’s performance this year. Well, we shall see (I’m sure I’ll read about it somewhere). Below are some screenshots from the video, and right at the bottom is the video itself. Enjoy.
