Tim Cahill is now a contender for the best goal at the 2014 FIFA World Cup.

The Aussie striker scored a beauty against the Netherlands on Wednesday, cracking a left-footed over-the-shoulder volley off the crossbar and in.

Funnily enough, he scored against the Netherlands, so Robin van Persie got a chance to watch the goal that may take the crown off of his head.

Van Persie scored against Spain last Friday on a magnificent rainbow header, off of a pass from half.

The pair are the clear goals of the tournament so far, and over here we’ll likely come to blows arguing over it, so now it’s time for you to weigh in: which goal was better?
