Tim Cahill to play international testimonial

Australia’s highest ever goal scorer, Tim Cahill, will head back to where it all began, when the Socceroos take on Lebanon in November.

He’ll head back to Sydney, where he grew up, and pull on the green and gold for one more time at ANZ stadium.

The 38-year-old has announced his retirement from international football but will continue to play in the Indian Super League.


He said it’s extremely humbling to be afforded the opportunity to represent his country one more time.

“It’ll be the most emotional game of my career,” he said.

“I’m really appreciate of everyone in the set-up of thinking of me.

“As a player, you just play, you represent your country but when you get rewarded with this sort of game it’s a very different perspective.”
