Cahill excited at prospect of Everton pre-season in Australia

Australia's Tim Cahill is looking beyond the World Cup finals in South Africa to when his club Everton visit his homeland in July. Cahill hopes to play in Sydney and Melbourne subject to his commitments with the Socceroos.

He said: "I am totally focused on Australia and our World Cup journey.

"But it's a dream for me that my club, Everton, is visiting my country as part of the pre-season preparations for the next (English) Premier League season.

"It's massive. It's non-stop football and it's great for fans, and great for the A-League too."

Everton will meet Australia's A-League champions, Sydney, at ANZ Stadium on July 10, Melbourne Heart at Etihad Stadium on July 14 and Brisbane Roar on July 17 at Suncorp Stadium.
