Relive some of the European Championship’s biggest moments—in Lego form

Watch everything from Michel Platini pushing France to win the tournament in 1984 to Greece’s unlikely victory in 2004.

Friday marks the beginning of the 2012 UEFA European Football Championship. What better way to mark the occasion than a stop-motion Lego video?

A clip spotted by our friends at The Daily What recreates some of the biggest moments from the championship over the last 28 years.

From Michel Platini pushing France to win the tournament in 1984 to Greece’s unlikely victory in 2004, plenty of major moments from one of soccer’s biggest events are highlighted.

There’s a slight pro-England bias in the clip, as evidenced in the “Hodgson’s Heroes” comment in the 2012 segment. Paul Gascoigne’s excellent goal against Scotland from 1996, along with the water-bottle celebration, is reimagined in Lego-style as well.

The video follows the stop-motion Lego videos that were shown during the last World Cup. I’m not sure I’ll ever get tired of England goalkeeper Robert Green’s flub against the U.S., even in Lego format.

The “Greatest Euro Moments” Lego animation is a fun overview of the tournament’s recent history, and should get you stretched and warmed up for the 31 games taking place at this year’s championship.
