Tomi Juric is also $7.00 but has attracted a third of the money Cahill has, with Mathew Leckie and Robbie Kruse both on $9.00.

“It hasn’t been decided whether Tim Cahill will start or come off the bench, but that hasn’t stopped punters backing him to score first,” said’s Will Byrne.

“He scored a double last time the sides met and its one-way traffic for a Socceroo win.”
