Cahill back in action for Red Bulls

Socceroos superstar Tim Cahill returned after a hamstring injury for New York Red Bulls with a 30-minute cameo in Thursday’s 2-1 win over Philadelphia Union.

Cahill hadn’t played for two-and-a-half weeks since limping off late last month with a hamstring strain in the MLS clash against Chivas USA.

The Australian will play a key role for the Socceroos at the 2014 World Cup which is less than two months away now, so getting through Thursday’s game was a major positive.

Cahill had returned to training on Monday, before coming off the bench to make his return as a 63rd minute substitute in Thursday’s win, the club’s first of the campaign.

“Massive win for our team tonight @NewYorkRedBulls fans were amazing tonight. Always believe and give everything and the result will come,” Cahill tweeted after the game.

The 34-year-old almost hit the scoresheet after barely being on the field for five minutes, when Eric Alexander’s left-flank cross appeared destined for him.

However, team-mate Lloyd Sam beat the fast-arriving Cahill to the header and hit the back of the net to make it 2-0.



Well that's a relief and great to see ! Especially for the man against Ecuador who scored the 3 goals and should have been awarded 3 more penalties, which would have made 6 goals in the one game to him.
I don't know if people realise how good he was in that game.
This is the New Ange Postecoglou Tim Cahill... much more powerful with better Oarsome service !
Always believe and the result will come.

Good work timmy, and also its FABIO from victory and sydney around 2011-2012 (bald player on the right)
