Former Everton forward Tim Cahill is still plying his trade at the ripe old age of 37 and, this week, he reminded everyone that age is just a number.
Australia are now just two games away from a guaranteed place at the 2018 World Cup finals after two goals from Tim Cahill saw them past Syria on Tuesday.
The game had gone to extra time with the score tied at 1-1 but the former Everton man came up with the goods once again with just minutes to spare as he nodded the ball over the line in extra time.
However, despite the fact that he was his nation’s saviour on the night in question, Cahill has come in for some criticism on the back of his latest outing as the Australian appears to have monetized his goal celebration.
With the game of football often slated for the ever-increasing prevalence of money in the sport, goal celebrations are surely one of the only untouched sanctities remaining in the game.
However, it seems Cahill signed off on some sort of deal which stated that he was committed to performing a ‘TripADeal T’ after finding the net for his nation.
Although the advert displaying Cahill’s T has now been withdrawn from TripADeal’s Instagram, at this moment in time, many still believe that the Australian could be in hot water for the gesture after Nicklas Bendtner was fined for a similar stunt back in 2012.
