Vote for Tim Cahill as the AFC Asian Cup's greatest ever forward
Caltex Socceroos great Tim Cahill is in the running to be named the best ever AFC Asian Cup forward as part of a series of polls to determine the tournament's ultimate all-star team.
The legendary Cahill, who will farewell the national team against Lebanon in November, is one of nine candidates for two attacking spots in the-AFC.com's all-time XI.
He has a strong case for inclusion following some groundbreaking exploits across three separate AFC Asian Cups.
Australia's greatest ever goalscorer opened the country's account at Asia's top continental competition with his strike against Oman in 2007.
The four-time FIFA World Cup™ participant followed that up with another two goals on the way to the final in 2011, before the ultimate success came four years later.
Cahill netted a vital equaliser in the tournament-opening win over Kuwait in 2015 before his sublime bicycle kick and a trademark header sent the Caltex Socceroos past China in the Quarter Finals and on the way to lifting the trophy.
The 38-year-old won't be involved in 2019, meaning his impressive AFC Asian Cup career ends with six goals and a winner's medal.
