MATCH RECAP: Australia 2, Netherlands 3

Tim Cahill scored his second goal of the 2014 World Cup against the Netherlands on Wednesday as Australia fell 3-2 in its second game of group play.

The goal from Cahill, Australia’s all-time leading scorer, was his 34th as a member of the Australian Men’s National Team.

After Arjen Robben put the Netherlands ahead with a goal in the 20th minute, Cahill answered just over a minute later to pull the Socceroos level. The forward got on the end of a Ryan McGowan cross and rocketed a left-footed volley off the cross bar and into the net.

Cahill will miss the final group stage game against Spain, however, after picking up his second yellow card of the tournament for a foul in the 43rd minute.

The Socceroos then took their first lead of the tournament in the 54th minute when Mile Jedinak converted a penalty kick to give Australia a 2-1 lead.

The Netherlands answered back with two unanswered goals from Robin van Persie and Memphis Depay to put the Dutch back on top 3-2.

Australia is now 0-2-0 through two games of group play. They finish out group play against Spain on Monday, June 23.
