Everton ace Tim Cahill is putting club before country.

Cahill insisted he is putting Everton first as he returned Down Under for a tour with the Premier League side.

The 30-year-old Australian, who endured a mixed World Cup campaign with a controversial red card in the opening loss to Germany before scoring in the defeat of Serbia, returns to action on Saturday when Everton take on A-League champions Sydney FC.

Cahill will be 34 when the World Cup next takes place and asked about his aspirations to take part in the tournament in Brazil, he said: "My main focus now is Everton.

"I think as long as I stay fit and keep playing consistently then I'll be happy - we'll see what happens in four years."
