Cahill enjoyed a stellar 2014 which included a nomination for FIFA goal of the year for his stunning volley at the World Cup and was also named the best player in the MLS at the annual ESPY awards.
The Sports Personality of the Year award is decided by the public with voting open from today (January 2 nd ) and closing on 1 st February.
