With the 2011-12 soccer seasons getting closer to the final lap, anticipation is building for Euro 2012. Part of the ritual of each major tournament is the collecting of Panini sticker albums. As we get closer to the tournament, we’ll find out whether the stickers will be available in the United States. But in the meantime, I wanted to share this interesting video with you courtesy of FIFA.
