It isn’t an international tournament until Tim Cahill scores a must-see goal.
Unlike his volley on day two of the World Cup, it took him until the quarterfinals of the Asian Cup to put his name in lights. But it was well worth the wait.
A cleared China corner was headed back into the penalty area by Australian defender Ivan Franjic straight to an unmarked Cahill. But instead of turning to face goal, the 35-year old attempted a bicycle kick and slipped the ball just past the Chinese goalkeeper.
Cahill added a header in the 65th minute to seal the match for the Socceroos and put them through to the Asian Cup semifinals with a 2-0 win.
Everton fans may remember Cahill pulling off a bicycle kick against Chelsea back in 2007. Once you learn, you never forget.
