Australia's greatest Socceroo Tim Cahill will pull on the green and gold one last time in an emotion-charged farewell match for his country against Lebanon.
Cahill, who announced his retirement after the 2018 FIFA World Cup, will be recognised for his contribution to the sport when the Socceroos meet Lebanon in an international friendly.
ANZ Stadium has been the scene of some of Cahill’s finest performances during his 107-cap career – from the historic night against Uruguay in 2005 to last year’s sudden-death triumphs over Syria and Honduras that took the Socceroos to the World Cup.
It promises to be the ultimate farewell for Cahill. NSW has a vibrant Australian Lebanese community (165,000 Australians of Lebanese heritage live in Sydney alone) and the game is set to be a colourful celebration of football and culture.
