In an historic day for the museum, the World Cup’s leading goalscorer Miroslav Klose visited the new home of football history.
Klose donated the pair of boots that he wore during the finals in Brazil to the musuem when he visited earlier this year. Although he has now retired from national team duty, Klose played in four FIFA World Cups (2002, 2006, 2010 and 2014), scoring 16 goals.

Klose is also the only player in the history of the World Cup to win four medals: bronze in 2006 and 2010, silver in 2002, and gold in 2014. After the finals in Brazil, Klose ended his international career on a high, having earned 137 caps and scored 71 goals.
