Tim Cahill's presence will bring about a lot of positivity according to Australia boss Holger Osieck.

The New York Red Bulls star is part of Osieck's 26-man Socceroos squad for World Cup qualifiers in June and the German is again backing the former Everton ace to be a crucial performer.

"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."
