TIM CAHILL’s bid for a fourth World Cup appearance is alive and well.


The Australian is bidding to join an elite group of players to have played in four World Cups including the legendary Bobby Charlton, Diego Maradona and Paolo Maldini, just to name a few.


Cahill has struggled for game time this season despite having signed with Melbourne City, who he left towards the end of 2017 after being consigned to the bench by coach Warren Joyce. Looking for more regular football in order to give himself every chance of being selected for the Socceroos squad, Cahill has returned to the club that helped make him a household name in Australia.


The 38-year-old hasn’t played for The Lions since 2004 before moving to Premier League outfit Everton. During his time at Millwall, Cahill became a cult figure and scored 52 goals in 217 appearances for the club.


There is no doubt that the chances of the Socceroos in Russia will hinge heavily on Cahill’s involvement and his best chance of making the squad now rests with him getting regular game time, and goals, for Millwall.


Will new Socceroos coach Bert Van Marwijk choose him? Only time will tell but Cahill will give himself every chance of being on that plane to Russia.


Key market: Cahill is $4.50 @ TAB to be Australia’s leading goal scorer for the tournament. Considering he is the Socceroos all-time leading scorer with 50 goals, the price looks too good to pass up.
