Holland 0-1 Spain [and now back to life as we usually know it ...]

[As the World Cup ends and with it, our month-long soccer indulgence, we feature one last bit of World Cup media - a deft English salute to the ultimate game. Do note that "Goal 2010!" CCAI's exhibition of the FIFA Fine Art Poster PortfolioGoal 2010! continues at the CCAI Courthouse Gallery continues through September 10, and we'll periodically feature prints from the exhibition, and soccer books at the Carson City Library.]

Brick-by-brick fussball: World Cup Final: Holland 0-1 Spain

A recreation of the 2010 World Cup final "in which Spain kept all their pieces together despite dirty play from the Dutch" from the brilliant and sadder-but-wiser mates staffing the Guardian sports desk.

One of a suite of their riveting marriages of stop frame animation Legos and actual match audio.

WATCH  to relive the yellow cards held high – and Iniesta's ball finding the back of the net.

Link to all the videos, including a painful recreation of Rob Green's 'awful moment' in the USA-England match.
