If there’s one player who both Everton fans and neutral Premier League supporters all have a soft spot for, it’s Tim Cahill.

The former Australian midfielder spent the good part of eight years with the Toffees in which he lead Everton to an FA Cup final as well as becoming the first player for the club since Dixie Dean to be nominated for the Ballon d’Or, and last night, the now 39-year-old Cahill was back in action.
The Ozzie assisted Robin van Persie during Vincent Kompany’s testimonial match, and plenty of Everton fans on social media were excited to see Cahill still performing well since retirement.
Here is what some Everton supporters had to say on Twitter…
