Australia's leading goal scorer Tim Cahill has retired from international football after a frustrating fourth World Cup tournament in Russia.The 38-year-old Cahill, who has scored 50 international goals in 107 caps, only made a substitute appearance for the Socceroos in their final group game at the World Cup in Russia, which ended in a 2-0 loss to Peru.The forward played just 10 games for the south London side, mostly from the bench and former Socceroos' coach Bert van Marwijk said that while Cahill's talisman presence would be valuable, he was not guaranteed a spot in his World Cup squad.Cahill's ability to score goals at crucial times had emphasized his importance to the side throughout his 14-year international career.
