Socceroo in waiting Tim Cahill played a vital role in Millwall reaching the semi finals of the FA Cup, after they beat Tranmere Rovers 2-1 earlier this morning in their replayed quarter final tie. Cahill (pictured right on the left), who is now eligible to play for the Socceroos after receiving a FIFA clearance late last month, scored the opening goal of the game after 11 minutes with a well taken shot into the corner of the goal, to set Millwall on its way. A second goal to Neil Harris five minutes later had Millwall firing and although Tranmere pulled a goal back before the break, the London club was able to hang on in the second half and book a place against 1st Division side Sunderland in three weeks time at Old Trafford. Cahill-s teammate and team captain Socceroo Kevin Muscat also played in the match and received a yellow card. Muscat will be very relieved after his missed penalty in the initial match saw the game to a replay. It was the first time Millwall has reached this stage of the competition in 67 years. Cahill performances for Millwall over the past couple of years have seen him capture the attention of several Premier League clubs and there is no doubt he will be pushing for a first call up to the Socceroos when they play South Africa in two weeks time in London.
