JAPAN, 2006 FIFA WORLD CUP
Who could forget? Cahill pounced on a loose ball inside a packed Japanese box before lashing home to net Australia’s first ever World Cup goal.
He then backed that up effort just minutes later with a fizzing effort from the edge of the box which hit both posts before nestling into the back of the net.
HOLLAND, 2014 FIFA WORLD CUP
Nominated for goal of the tournament, Cahill’s volley against the Netherlands will live long in the memory of Aussie football fans.
Ryan McGowan’s drifted a long diagonal ball into the box which Cahill allowed to drop over his shoulder before unleashing a thumping left-foot volley which crashed into the back of the net.
CHINA, 2015 ASIAN CUP
Cometh the hour, cometh the man!
With scores locked at 0-0 in the Asian Cup Quarter-Final, Cahill reacted quickest to a high ball inside the box before executing an acrobatic bicycle kick which left China stunned.
SYRIA, 2017 FIFA WORLD CUP QUALIFIER
After a frustrating night against a stoic defensive opponent, Cahill again proved Australia’s savior with a trademark header at Stadium Australia. Robbie Kruse whipped in an inviting cross which Cahill met with aplomb to hand the Socceroos a thrilling 2-1 victory in extra time.
