Cahill wonder strike not enough to down Dutch

THE Socceroos have put in a brave performance against the Netherlands, going down 3-2 in the FIFA World Cup in Porto Alegre.

The Australians went down 1-0 early in the first half but equalised soon after when Tim Cahill slammed home a stunning goal.

Skipper Mile Jedinak put the Socceroos in front with a second half penalty, but two goals in less than 10 minutes sealed the Netherlands' victory.
