Socceroo talisman Tim Cahill returns to Australia for World Cup preparations this week after scoring in an epic nine-goal loss for his club New York Red Bulls.
Cahill’s MLS side were beaten by Chicago Fire 5-4 in a rollercoaster clash at the Red Bull Arena. The Aussie scored with a trademark header but it wasn’t enough with Fire’s Harry Shipp netting a hat-trick and an assist in the win for the visitors.
Cahill hit home a thunderous trademark header off a cross from Eric Alexander, giving the Designated Player his first goal of the season in what was his final match before joining Australia for their World Cup preparations,” reported the club’s website.
The club released Cahill this week even though it was allowed to hold onto the former EPL star for another week.
The final chance to see the Socceroos on home soil before they head to Brazil 2014 will be when they take on South Africa in a farewell game on May 26 in Sydney. Tickets for the match, presented by NAB, are on sale now. Click here to secure yours today.
