Tim Cahill has declared himself available to play against Honduras in the crucial 2018 World Cup qualifying playoff on Wednesday night, as reported by The Guardian.
The 37-year-old forward has only recently returned to full training following his ankle injury in Melbourne City’s 1-0 defeat by Sydney FC earlier this month.
When The Guardian reporter asked about his fitness, Cahill stated he was ready to start if that’s what coach Ange Postecoglou wants.
“If I had to play in Honduras I definitely would have made a contribution,” the Australia all-time greatest scorer said.
“That’s what it’s all about, putting your body on the line and sacrificing for these two games, for such a big occasion for our country to qualify for a fourth consecutive World Cup.”
