Cahill eager to break Australia record at a 'place that I call home'

Tim Cahill currently sits on 29 international goals for Australia ahead of Wednesday night's (Thursday morning AEDT) friendly with Ecuador.

The 34-year old New York Red Bulls midfielder is equal with Damian Mori on the aforementioned goals tally which could be broken at The Den in London's south when the Socceroos meet the Ecuadorians.

Cahill began his club career with Millwall, coincidentally whose home is the venue for the friendly, and the former Everton great feels it could be a special moment if he happens to break the record at his old home.

"It's sort of like how the stars have aligned," Cahill told a news conference on Tuesday.

"This is where it all started and to score tomorrow night, if I play, it's just one of those things in your career that would be really special.

"It's a place that I call home along with Everton and to be the all-time leading goalscorer for Australia where it all started might be special, but if it's not here it'll be somewhere else."

Cahill made his Socceroos debut against South Africa back in 2004, just months before he departed Millwall following a six-year spell to sign for Everton.
