Tim Cahill is the man who scores the Socceroos goals, the man who always come up with the goods.
Melbourne Victory recruit Carl Valeri sees Australia's all-time leading goal scorer as the key for the Socceroos to upset the Dutch in Porto Alegre early on Thursday morning.
While the world is buzzing about the Netherlands' 5-1 crushing of Spain in their World Cup opener, Canberra's Valeri thinks the Socceroos' relatively unknown status could be an advantage.
Cahill has scored 33 goals for Australia and has joined a select group of players to score in three World Cups.
He's not only our most high profile player, but our most dangerous as well.
So much so, the Dutch have admitted their chief concern is stopping him from getting his head on the ball.
Valeri thought Cahill could continue on to the next World Cup in Russia in 2018.
"He's the man who scores the goals for Australia," said Valeri, who's holidaying in Sicily.
"You're as good as your last game in football and his last game he scored, and the game before that he scored. He always come up with the goods.
"I remember the games I played alongside him for the Australian team, especially in the important ones he always scored, he always came up with the decisive goal or the goal that helps the comeback.
"He's someone that I'd like to have in my team always, he's the key for Australia at the moment."
The Dutch boast some of the biggest names in soccer and Socceroos coach Ange Postecoglou will know exactly what to expect on Thursday.
But the Socceroos are a relatively unknown group, making preparations against them quite difficult.
Valeri felt this allowed Australia to go in ready, while having a bit of mystery around its own capabilities.
"[The Socceroos will] know the players inside out and what their movements are," he said.
"I don't think many teams know the Australian players that well, that's a good thing."
Valeri took heart from the spirit the Socceroos showed for the last hour of their 3-1 loss to Chile on Saturday.
If they can start with the same attitude they finished with, then Valeri thinks anything was possible.
Footage of the Dutch romp over Spain might strike fear into the Socceroos' hearts, but Valeri said it was just 11 men against 11.
"I played Holland in Holland and they were fantastic players," Valeri said.
"They're a bit quicker than us, they were obviously technically a bit better, but they're just men, they're not monsters, they're not freaks, they make mistakes and I'm sure the boys will get in their faces and cause them some problems."
