      The museum tweeted on Saturday, "When Kim Young-gwon scored the first goal [in added time during the match against Germany] he made football history, and so his shirt is now part of the FIFA Museum collection."

      It featured images of Kim scoring in the game, and of his jersey, on its social media.

      In June, Kim scored in the 92nd minute of the last group-stage game against Germany to give Korea the lead. Teammate Son Heung-min added a second shortly afterwards to seal the win over the Germans.

      Despite the victory, Korea failed to advance to the round of 16 after posting a win and two losses, though it also denied the defending champion a place in the round.
