Cahill to play in Australia’s friendly with Japan

STAR striker Tim Cahill has been declared fit for the Socceroos crucial Asian Cup warm-up clash with Japan on Tuesday.

Cahill had been in doubt for the clash after sustaining a hip injury during training, forcing him to miss a couple of training sessions.

But the veteran striker rejoined team training on Monday and was passed fit by coach Ange Postecoglou, who’ll have his full squad available.


Postecoglou will be searching for just his third victory on Tuesday night, which will be his 12th game at the helm since being appointed a year ago.
