Bio

The first Australian ever to score in a World Cup, Cahill is recognized as the Socceroos' best player. A box-to-box midfielder who possesses terrific aerial ability, Cahill's fitness and vision are considered major strengths due to his small frame. Cahill scored twice to erase a 1-0 deficit in a 3-1 victory over future Asian rival Japan in a group-stage match in the 2006 World Cup, helping Australia reach the round of 16. He has scored 19 goals in his career for Australia, including four in qualifiers for the 2010 World Cup. Cahill has become a fixture the last six seasons with Everton of the English Premier League, helping the Toffees to an FA Cup runner-up finish in 2009 and four appearances in European competition in that span. He's scored over 50 goals, including four in European action. Previously, Cahill also led his first English club - Millwall - to the FA Cup final in 2004 before his transfer to Everton. As a 16-year-old, Cahill opted to leave his native Sydney for England to begin a professional career. Cahill played for Western Samoa as a teenager, first becoming eligible to compete for Australia in the 2004 Olympics.
