Tim Cahill Called Up to the Australian National Team

Australia's Head Coach Holger Osiek has named his 22-man squad that will face Lebanon in a friendly and Jordan in a World Cup Qualifier in early September, and New York Red Bull Designated Player Tim Cahill has made the list. Australia is a member of the Asian Football Confederation and is in Group B for World Cup qualifying. The Socceroos play September 6th in Beirut, Lebanon, and again on the 11th in Amman, Jordan, and Tim Cahill's presence will be key for Australia after they tied their first two qualifiers against Japan and Oman, 1-1 and 0-0. The Red Bulls return to action after a two-week hiatus for the international FIFA dates on September 15th at home against the Columbus Crew. Barring injury, fans should expect to see Cahill back with the club and in the starting eleven for what may turn out to be a crucial Eastern Conference match up. Cahill may also be called up for one other Australia World Cup qualifier in 2012 against Iraq in mid-October, which is sandwiched between Red Bulls games against two other likely Eastern Conference playoff teams, the Chicago Fire and Sporting Kansas City. Also traveling for international duty during the early September MLS schedule break will be Joel Lindpere (Estonia), Bill Gaudette (Puerto Rico), and Roy Miller (Costa Rica).
