You don’t have to convince us Aussies how good Tim Cahill is, but the rest of the world is finally waking up to themselves with Cahill an $8.00 chance to take out the 2014 FIFA Goal of the Year Award.
Online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has the Socceroo on the fifth line of betting following his breathtaking left foot volley against the Netherlands at the World Cup.
Colombia’s James Rodriguez heads the market at $3.75 for his effort for Uruguay in the same tournament. Superstars Zlatan Ibrahimovic ($6.00) and Robin Van Persie ($6.50) are also in the market as part of the 10-goal shortlist.
“It’s not the first gripe Australian soccer fans have had with FIFA but when they awarded James Rodriguez with goal of the World Cup they erred by not choosing Timmy Cahill. Now is the time for the sport’s governing body to make amends and celebrate the wonder strike,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
Irishwoman Stephanie Roche, an $11 chance, is the only female to make the final ten.
