#TimCahilling sparks global craze

Socceroos star Tim Cahill summed up the shock felt around the world as Germany destroyed Brazil in the first half of their World Cup semi-final on Tuesday – and it’s now sparked a Twitter craze.

As Die Mannschaft piled on the goals to lead 5-0 over the Selecao at half-time in Belo Horizonte, the New York Red Bulls forward posted a picture of his stunned reaction on Twitter.

Plenty of fans got in on the action around the world, including his Australia team-mate Jason Davidson.

All of a sudden, the Socceroos' 4-0 loss to Germany at the 2010 World Cup - a match in which Cahill was sent off - doesn't look so bad.

And plenty of fans and celebs got in on the #TimCahilling act.
