Hearing the catcalls from some of the media and fans about his lack of scoring, New York Red Bulls midfielder Tim Cahill took it upon himself to make his mark in a big way.
Cahill’s two goals on Saturday in the Red Bull’s 2-1 win over Toronto FC including the game-winner in the 89th minute has earned him SBI MLS Player of the Week honors for Week Nine. The Australian’s goals were his first two of the season, and came in a match where the team was without the normal central midfield duo of Dax McCarty and Juninho.
Cahill beat out a talented group of players for this week’s honor including Montreal Impact forward Marco Di Vaio, New England Revolution midfielder Lee Nguyen, Portland Timbers forward Ryan Johnson, Los Angeles Galaxy goalkeeper Brian Rowe and Vancouver Whitecaps forward Kekuta Manneh.
