It’s been over 40 years since England last lifted the Jules Rimet trophy, otherwise known as the World cup. England began their perpetual odyssey towards ultimate disappointment (no doubt via a penalty shootout) against the relative minnows of the USA on Saturday night.
In the true tradition of English World Cup campaigns past, they snatched a draw from the jaws of victory courtesy of a calamitous goalkeeping error fro Robert Green. Anyone who woke up from a coma on Sunday morning would have thought nothing else happened in the world on Saturday other than a slight goalkeeping faux pas.
Rather than watch the endless highlights on Youtube, why not check out this kinda cool German website who are recreating this years highlights using stop animation and LEGO….yes those stick brick toys much beloved of children who should really get outside in the fresh air a little more.
See it here –
They have created an entire back catalogue of games including a rather wonderful moment back in 1966 when Football came home and Geoff Hurst scored the winning goal at Wembley.
This an all manner of other stop animated LEGO-Y goodness can be found here.
