Bolton defender Cahill retains World Cup hopes
Cahill, 24, is now hoping to use Bolton's last four games to book himself a place in Fabio Capello's World Cup squad.
The England boss checked him out in Bolton's 1-0 defeat at Chelsea on Tuesday.
And Cahill, who is yet to represent his country at senior level, said: "I was aware that Fabio Capello was watching at Chelsea on Tuesday night.
"I don't think I did myself too much harm in that game."
