Cahill trains briefly ahead of WC18 qualifier

Tim Cahill is toeing the line about whether he’ll take part in the Socceroos World Cup qualifier against Honduras tomorrow.

Australia’s greatest ever goal scorer is nursing an injured ankle and is unlikely to part in the away leg of the two-part qualifier.

However, a brief appearance at Australia’s training this morning has sparked speculation about Cahill playing at Estadio Olimpico stadium tomorrow morning.


The only training the talismanic forward undertook was walking laps of the field and signing autographs.

Earlier, Socceroos Coach Ange Postecoglou patrolled the stadium and studied the quality of the turf.

“I just had a walk on it now, the pitch is not in a great condition,” he said.

“It’s a little bit bumpy and a little bit soft.

“We were prepared for that – we understand it’s going to be hard to play the kind of football we want to play, we’ll adjust to that.”
