Red Bulls in World Cup Qualifying Action Tonight (or Today)

Richard Heathcote

Tim Cahill already played and Roy Miller is set to tonight, as the two Red Bulls finish up World Cup qualifying duty.

World Cup qualifying has already been notable for both Roy Miller and Tim Cahill, with both of them scoring big goals for their respective countries.

Miller scored the only goal as his Costa Rican side showed Hondouras off 1-0, pushing his countrymen, albeit breifly, to the top of the Hexagonal.

Cahill's Australia side needed two wins to qualify for the World Cup and the midfielder did his part last Wednesday, heading home the Socceroos second goal en route to a 4-0 drubbing of Jordan.


(Sorry about the video, it's the best I could find.)

This morning, Australia beat Iraq 1-0 with an 83rd minute goal, securing a place in their third consecutive World Cup. Cahill played 77 minutes for his country, fresh off having a highway named after him (temporarily) in his hometown of Sydney and was a brilliant save away from giving the Aussies an early lead.

The other half of the Red Bulls' international equation, Miller, will take the field tonight in Costa Rica against Panama. As it stands, the Ticos are in second in the Hex with 8 points, two behind the leading United States (U-S-A! U-S-A! U-S-A!). Currently, they have an 85.1 percent chance of qualifying. Miller and company sit one point ahead of tonight's opponents, who have a 44 percent chance of qualifying. If qualifying were to end today, Honduras would play New Zealand in an intercontinental playoff for the right to go to Brazil.
