Everton's Cahill will not be selected for Australian squad

Tim Cahill will not be included in Holger Osieck's Australian squad when he names it on Tuesday. The Everton star will not travel back to his homeland for international friendlies against New Zealand on June 5 and Serbia on the 7th as he focuses on rest before getting back to full fitness following a foot injury which messed with his availability for the Toffees in the Premier League season run-in.

Cahill and Blackpool left-back David Carney, who recently had shoulder surgery, will not be picked but away from that, Osieck is expected to select a relatively strong list for the double header on home soil.

Fulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer will be available as will Galatasaray winger Harry Kewell but the jury is still out on skipper Lucas Neill who has a groin injury.
