If you were one of the many who witnessed Iceland’s 2-1 smiting of England last month, and you happen to be in Iceland this weekend, you’re in luck.

The Iceland National Museum has just announced that the ball played in that legendary game will become a part of the collection, and will go on display tomorrow.

“This famous football ensured the Icelandic National team a victory against England in the 2016 Euro Cup,” their announcement reads in part. In addition, from 13:00 to 16:00, you will be allowed to have a photo of yourself taken with the ball.

The National Museum showcases historic artifacts from Icelandic history, so when you’re done admiring the ball, you should also check out the rest of the museum.
