Aussies abroad: Cahill, Spiranovic score in China

In good news for the Socceroos, in-form Tim Cahill and defender Matt Spiranovic both scored for their clubs in China overnight.

Cahill opened the scoring for Shanghai Shenhua, coolly slotting home a 19th minute penalty in the derby against Shanghai SIPG as he sent goalkeeper Yan Junling the wrong way.

Unfortunately for Cahill’s side they were overrun in the second half, going down 2-1 at home.
