On 23 July 2004 Tim Cahill joined Everton

The Australian signed for the Toffees after helping Millwall reach the 2003/04 FA Cup final and quickly made his mark in the Premier League.

Cahill scored 11 goals in his first season at Goodison Park and went on to rack up a total of 56 strikes and 22 assists in 226 top-flight appearances during his eight-year spell with the club.

Despite standing at 178cm, or under 6ft, thirty-one of his goals were with his head. That means Cahill scored the highest proportion of headers of any Premier League player to net more than 27 times in the competition.

The forward also found the net in three Merseyside derbies at Liverpool before leaving Everton in July 2012 to join New York Red Bulls.
