Last year, Socceroos striker Tim Cahill scored the best goal of the World Cup.
Last night, he was at it again, in Australia’s quarter-final against China in the Asian Cup:
Cahill’s amazing bicycle kick was first of the two he scored to lead Australia to a 2-0 win and a likely semi-final against tournament favourites Japan.
It happened in the 49th minute as Cahill sized up a lob into the box, peeled back off his defender and rolled the dice. Stunning:
His header in the 65th looked pedestrian in comparison, but it was his 39th for the Socceroos. The 35-year-old added five in what was supposed to be his last World Cup for Australia.
Don’t bet on it.
