Millwall fans react as Tim Cahill announces his retirement

Millwall and Everton legend Tim Cahill has announced his retirement from football this week, with the Australian set to hang up his boots at the end of the season after a fantastic career spanning 20 years.

The 39-year-old made 217 appearances for the Lions between 1998 and 2004, scoring 52 goals – of which his winner against Manchester United in the FA Cup semi-final of 2004 will remain the most memorable amongst the Millwall fans.

The striker enjoyed similar success at Everton after securing a move to Goodison Park that summer but surely felt his business at the Den was unfinished and eventually returned to east London in 2018, registering a further 10 appearances.

Even on the cusp of his forties, the heading expert is still scoring goals at a professional level and has netted twice for Jamshedpur in the Indian Super League this campaign.
