Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has hailed Tim Cahill after the former Everton and Millwall man scored the winner for Australia against Iraq.

The 32-year-old, who now plays for New York Red Bulls, is three goals behind Damian Mori’s record of 29 goals for his country – a feat that is not considered that great given that the majority of his goals came against the likes of the Solomon Islands, Fiji, the Cook Islands, Tahiti, Tonga

“He’s a phenomenal player and he’s been a phenomenal player for Australia and for whoever he’s played for throughout his career, whether it be Millwall, Everton or now New York Red Bulls,” Schwarzer said.

“He’s a top lad to have around as well.

“His goalscoring record is a very good goalscoring record.

“Records are there to be broken and it would be very fitting if Timmy did break it and I’m sure he will.”
