ROBBEN VAN PERSIE and Lionel Messi are early frontrunners for the best goal of the 2014 World Cup but Tim Cahill has thrown his name into the hat this evening.

After Arjen Robben had put the Dutch ahead on 20 minutes, the New York Red Bulls forward struck seconds into the restart with a peach of a volley.

In the 54th minute, Australia were awarded a harsh-looking penalty when Bozanic’s cross struck the arm of Janmaat. Crystal Palace midfielder Mile Jedinak dispatched the penalty.

Four minutes later, however, Robin van Persie scored his third goal of the tournament to bring Holland level again.

Holland then went ahead for the first time when Memphis Depay had a go from distance and Aussie keeper Matthew Ryan failed to get a strong hand to it.
