Everton legend Tim Cahill is shocked by Chelsea goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer's decision to retire from international football.

Schwarzer decided to quit the Australian national team yesterday.

Cahill, now with the New York Red Bulls, said: "This is incredible. A complete surprise. He is someone who I've looked up to throughout my career. He is one of the most important ambassadors of Australian football, but above all a gentleman inside and outside the lines "
