A pair of Tim Cahill’s boots will join items like the FIFA World Cup trophy, match balls from some of football’s biggest occasions and rare match-worn shirts in FIFA’s World Football Museum in Switzerland.
The Caltex Socceroos legend revealed on Instagram on Sunday morning (AEDT) that he would be featured in the Zurich-based museum, which houses more than 1000 pieces of football memorabilia.
