List of international goals scored by Tim Cahill

Tim Cahill is an Australian national footballer who plays as a midfielder or forward for the Australian national team . He has scored 48 goals in his 100 appearances for the side, making him the nation’s top scorer of all time.

Cahill made his debut for the Socceroos against South Africa in March 2004. [1] His first two goals for the side came in a win over Tahiti at the 2004 OFC Nations Cup . [2] In the next game of the tournament, Cahill scored his first international hat-trick , scoring three goals against Fiji . [3] He has scored twice in a match on eight occasions. [4] Cahill scored his 29th international goal against Costa Rica on 19 November 2013, equaling Damian Mori ‘s national record. [5] His two goals against Ecuador in London on 5 March 2014 saw him become the outright record-holder. [6] He has become known for his typical goal celebration, in which he runs to the corner of the pitch and boxes the corner flag . [7]

Cahill has scored against Japan more than he has against any other side, with five goals. [4] This includes two goals at the 2006 FIFA World Cup , qui aussi Were the first two goals Scored by Australia at Any FIFA World Cup . [8] He also scored in two other World Cups: against Serbia in 2010 and against Chile and the Netherlands in 2014 . [4] His volleyed goal against the Netherlands was subsequently nominated for the FIFA Puskás Award for 2014. [9] He has scored against each of the six FIFA Confederations. [10] More than half of Cahill’s international goals have been scored outside Australia. He has scored six times in Adelaide (all at the 2004 OFC Nations Cup ) and six times in Sydney , the most of any city. [4]

Cahill has also scored at three AFC Asian Cups and one of the OFC Nations Cup . [4] His late equalizer against Oman at the 2007 AFC Asian Cup was Australia’s first Asian Cup goal. [11] Thirteen of Cahill’s forty-eight international goals have been scored in friendlies. [10] He was also named Oceania Footballer of the Year for 2004. [12]
