Quieting critics; it’s what Tim Cahill has done all season for club and country.

The Red Bulls midfielder and a few of his national team mates were criticized strongly by Australian media for a lackluster second half against Japan last week. Cahill answered back with an emphatic goal, helping Australia to a crushing 4-0 victory over Jordan.

The win now puts Australia in second place in Asia’s Group B qualifying table with 10 points. A victory over Iraq in their final match in Sydney will seal their direct berth to Brazil 2014.
