It’s a devastating day for Australians everywhere. Socceroos legend Tim Cahill has announced his retirement from international football.

The 38-year-old announced his retirement via social media earlier this morning. “Today’s the day that I’m officially hanging up my boots on my international career with the Socceroos. No words can describe what it has meant to represent my country. Massive thank you to everyone for the support throughout all my years wearing the Australian badge.” he wrote.

The retirement of Tim Cahill also marks the retirement of me ever watching Football again. He truly was an icon. The man holds an Australian-record haul of 50 international goals from his 107 caps. His influence alone brought us the Cahill Expressway. His legacy will live on forever.
