Socceroos legend Tim Cahill may come under scrutiny from Federation Internationale de Football Association amid reports he performed a goal celebration for a sponsor in Tuesday's World Cup qualifier against Syria.
The 37-year-old was once again the hero for Australia, scoring both goals in the 2-1 victory at ANZ Stadium to keep the Socceroos' World Cup dream alive.
Australian's all-time top-scorer Tim Cahill sparked debate after scoring twice in his country's extra-time victory against Syria, which put the Socceroos one step closer to qualifying for Russian Federation 2018.

Kubica's F1 career had appeared to be over when he sustained serious arm and hand injuries in a rallying accident in February 2011, but his performance in a test for Renault at Valencia in June has placed him on the comeback trail.
In a social media post which has since been deleted, Australian online travel agency TripaDeal, posted a photo of Cahill celebrating his goal, his 50th for the Socceroos, with the caption: "Did you catch Tim Cahill, our new brand ambassador, doing the". "T" after he scored the winning goal last night?
If Cahill is sanctioned the likely penalty would be a hefty fine. "Events which require further attention may be communicated accordingly", Federation Internationale de Football Association said in a statement.
Cahill's brace of headers on Tuesday booked Australia's place in a 2018 World Cup playoff with Honduras which has been set for November.
