Cahill began his career with English Championship side Millwall and played a major role in the club's run to the 2004 FA Cup Final, bagging the winner in the semi-final. He joined Premier League side Everton the following season and quickly endeared himself to Toffees fans with regular goals from midfield.
Cahill signed for Major League side New York Red Bulls after eight seasons at Goodison Park and later had spells in China and the Hyundai A-League before returning to his first club, Millwall, in January.
Arguably Australia's all-time greatest player, Cahill has delivered on the big stage with astounding success. He is the Caltex Socceroos' all-time leading scorer, second-most capped player and most prolific FIFA World Cup goal-getter.
Best Caltex Socceroos moment:
Cahill will become a true FIFA World Cup legend if in 2018 he can score for the fourth successive tournament, a feat achieved only by Pele, Uwe Seeler and Miroslav Klose.
He has already written himself into Australian footballing folklore with his catalogue of highlights including the country's first and second FIFA World Cup goals against Japan in 2006 and that stunning volley against Netherlands in 2014 that was nominated for the Puskas Award.
Hyundai A-League connection:
Cahill contributed 11 goals in his 28 Hyundai A-League appearances for Melbourne City, highlighted by a stunning long-range strike on debut against Melbourne Victory.
Did you know?
Cahill was also eligible to play for England, the Republic of Ireland and Samoa. A youth-age appearance for the latter led him to challenge FIFA for the right to switch allegiance to Australia, which was eventually approved in 2004.
