Everton forced their way into the UEFA Cup´s last 32 as group winners after a 1-0 triumph over Russian champions Zenit St Petersburg, with boss David Moyes hailing the contribution of match winner Tim Cahill.
Cahill, who has missed long spells this season recovering from a broken metatarsal, scored his sixth goal in nine games to keep Everton´s European adventure alive.
And Moyes said: "Tim popped up again with the winner, but that is what he does. I don´t send him out telling him to score goals, he just does that anyway. He always goes out to score, he always wants to score. He is a very important player for us and his influence is growing game by game."
