Under pressure Cahill hits back with timely goal

Socceroo Tim Cahill has scored a timely goal for Shanghai Shenhua amid reports suggesting the Chinese club are keen to offload him.

The Australian forward netted just his second goal since joining Shenhua, with a trademark second-half header from a corner.

The goal leveled the scores in the 67th minute, before Shanghai went on to win 3-1 over Liaoning Whowin.

Cahill has been a regular for Shanghai but his only previous goal came from the penalty spot almost two months ago.

There has been reports in the past few weeks hinting that the big-spending Chinese club were eager to let Cahill go.

It is believed Shenhua are not satisfied with Cahill's output and want to better utilise their Asian spot in their five foreign player allocation.

No A-League club has been linked with the Sydney-born superstar, with some reports suggesting Shenhua would loan him to another Chinese club.
