Duesseldorf:

Germany coach Joachim Loew on Monday donated his 'lucky' blue sweater worn during the 2010 World Cup for its inclusion in a museum being built by the German Football Federation (DFB).

"I hope that the pullover will have a worthy place in the museum and will be well looked after," said Loew as he handed over the cashmere sweater.

"Maybe I will still need it to bring me luck in other tournaments."

The presentation took place a day before Germany are due to meet Belgium here as the hosts bid to make it ten wins out of ten in Euro 2012 qualifying.

The sweater was purchased by the owners of a German supermarket chain last December for one million euros.

It earned its reputation as a lucky charm after Loew wore it during three wins when his side scored four goals in South Africa - against Australia (4-0), Argentina (4-0) and England (4-1).

Germany finally lost to eventual winners Spain to finish third in the tournament.

Work on the DFB museum is due to start in 2012 on the site in Dortmund, western Germany and will be completed in 2014.
