Just a nifty little time-lapse clip of the PGE Gdansk Arena (one of the stadiums that has been thrown up in Poland specifically for Euro 2012) emerging from the terra firma in the space of 60 seconds – a build which took two years in actuality…

…not that this guy’s remotely impressed..

    Sweet pony of Sierra Leone…

    That was pretty awesome, kind of odd that it was uploaded by a Ukrainian. Don’t they have their own stadiums built yet? Hahaha.

    Good video and looks a great stadium but the euro’s are shit really i agree with that guy. wont be saying that if we win mind but for now just counting down the days until 2014 …

    apparently this stadium was built by north korean contractors, and they were trying to pass this video off as real-time. at one point, they say that kim jong-il manned two cranes at once so the project would finish on time.
