Australian national team star Tim Cahill insists he will focus on club duties this summer.
The 31-year old Everton forward will not travel back home for Juneâ€™s international friendly with Serbia as he strives to get over a foot injury that has plagued him all season.
Cahill has played just one of the Toffeesâ€™ last six matches and was also forced to miss the Socceroosâ€™ recent 2-1 victory over Germany on Monchengladbach and he admitted to The World Game that he will spend this summer getting himself right for his club.
â€śIâ€™ve played seven years with no rest in the summer, probably more, and I wouldnâ€™t change it for the world because Iâ€™ve got a foot problem, but Iâ€™m buzzing,â€ť he said. â€śThis is the best league in the world, I love football, I love playing for my country but also commonsense has to prevail.
â€śI missed the Germany game and I will probably miss the next couple of games because theyâ€™re friendlies.
â€śFor me, when itâ€™s a competition where you can win something or get something out of it I will be back playing but at the moment my main focal point is the Premier League and obviously doing well for my club.â€ť
