Bayern triumph just child's play for 'typical German'

BAYERN Munich's recent elimination of Manchester United from the Champions League was greeted with such joy in Bavaria -- and beyond -- that one fanatic has recreated the decisive goals on film... using Lego bricks.

Fabian Moritz, a 19-year-old Bayern fan, was so inspired by his side's victory on away goals that he started making the film just a couple of hours after the final whistle went at Old Trafford and kept going until 8.0 the next morning. Typical German.

In the 90-second clip, Moritz was able to reconstruct the goals from Ivica Olic and Arjen Robben, including action replays, with the soundtrack provided by the authentic German TV commentary from the night.

We particularly like the recreation of Franck Ribery -- complete with facial scars -- while Robben's odd celebration for his goal is highly amusing.

The only drawback is that Moritz couldn't recreate the pivotal moment when Rafael got sent off for a tug on Ribery, which would certainly have been interesting if only to see the expression on the Frenchman's face and those of his team-mates as they surrounded the referee.

Although Michael Carrick's 'attempt' to stop Olic from scoring is even more laughable on the Lego clip than it is in the real one.
