POLL RESULTS: Tim Cahill's most memorable Caltex Socceroos goal
Caltex Socceroos fans have had their say on which is their favourite Tim Cahill goal for Australia during his glittering international career.
Cahill racked up his 50th goal in the green and gold in Tuesday night’s gripping 2-1 win over Syria which kept Australia’s 2018 FIFA World Cup hopes alive.
We gave fans the choice of four famous Cahill goals to decide which was their favourite and the results are in.
In a tight race, Cahill’s second goal in the epic 3-1 win over Japan at the 2006 FIFA World Cup topped the vote, was 45% of fans naming that as their favourite.
His stunning left-footed volley against the Netherlands at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil was just behind, picking up 43% of the vote, while his match-winning header against Syria coming in a distant third with 8%.
Cahill’s acrobatic overhead kick in the 2015 AFC Asian Cup quarter final win over China was fourth, accumulating 4% of the fan vote.
Let’s hope ‘Super Timmy’ can add a few more goals to his collection in the Caltex Socceroos’ must-win Intercontinental Playoff against Honduras next month.
