Everton's Cahill not likely to stop internationals anytime soon

Tim Cahill has indicated that he is unlikely to stop playing for the Australian national team anytime in the near future. The Everton star has been a superb performer for the Socceroos in most of his 53 appearances and with the national teams goalscoring record in his sights, the 31-year old will continue representing his country for as long as his body will allow him.

"I won't stop playing until my body stops," Cahill told the Daily Star.

"It`s a big thing for us to play for Australia and you do it whenever you can. It has given me some of the best moments of my life and I won`t give that up.

"It is not in my mentality to stop. Would you say to Steven Gerrard or John Terry or any of the top players for England that now you are 31, will you stop playing for England?

"I am now close to Damian Mori's goals record (29) for Australia - and I would love to beat it (he is now on 24).

"I love football. You try as hard as you can for your club and your country, too."
