Where does this metal piece go inside iPhone 5?

I opened up my phone to replace the power button and at one point following the guide I turned my iPhone (5) around and this little piece fell on my desk, but I don't know at what place it was before :s

Can you please help me to identify where this piece goes ?

under your board, the wifi antenna plugs into a socket. Follow the wifi antenna (near the top of the phone by the power/vol flex). The wifi antenna is normally secured and routed through this piece. Practically, you can leave it off.
