When the Socceroos line up in Brazil next month for the World Cup, there's no doubt it's going to be tough. But our top goal scorer, Tim Cahill, will be there to bolster our hopes.

It will be the 34 year old’s third World Cup and almost certainly his last.

It’s an emotional time for a man who doesn't like to show his emotions.

But Tim Cahill has millions of reasons to smile.

After a magnificent career in England's premier league and a bank balance to match, he's now being paid handsomely to play his favourite game in America.

Liz Hayes spent a week with Tim, his wife, and four children in New York as he prepared to don the green and gold again.
