Cahill on target as Toffees win

Published Add your comment

Tim Cahill scripted his comeback to perfection with his first goal in almost a year as Everton secured a 3-1 victory in their UEFA Cup Group A opener against Greek side Larissa.

On his first start since the beginning of March after a metatarsal injury, the Australia midfielder opened the scoring with a delightful diving header in the 14th minute. It was classic Cahill and in the 50th minute his outstanding pass helped to orchestrate Leon Osman´s brilliant clincher from 22 yards.

A 65th-minute strike from Cleyton Alexandre Silva had home nerves jangling but substitute Victor Anichebe ensured Everton rounded off proceedings with a superb late third.
