Cahill a major threat

VITORIA, Brazil - The Netherlands have put a bounty on the head of Australian marksman Tim Cahill in their looming World Cup fixture.

Cahill's heading ability has been identified by Holland as their major threat in the clash in Porto Alegre on Thursday. Cahill's headed goal in Australia's 1-3 loss against Chile in Cuiaba last Friday rang alarm bells in the Dutch camp, midfielder Nigel de Jong says.

"He's a terrific player that always gives his heart and his all on the pitch, for his country or his club," de Jong told reporters in Porto Alegre yesterday.

"We have to be careful because the timing to the ball with his headers is one of the best. He is one of the best timers I have seen from all the players around the world.

"So we have to take care of that very well."

The Dutch torched Spain 5-1 in their tournament opener but star striker Robin van Persie cautioned against a let-down against the unfancied Australians.
