Tim Cahill's presence will bring about a lot of positivity according to Australia boss Holger Osieck.
"I think to have Tim around is always good for the team. He is a very positive character," Osieck said.
"He is always an inspiration to the other players and, of course with his personal situation right now, he is an attacking player who will gain a boost if he scores.
"Even in the last game against Oman, he was so positive and he really tried to have a great impact on the atmosphere within the group and I'm pretty sure that he's going to do the same in the upcoming games."
