7 May 2018

Millwall's Australian duo of Tim Cahill and James Meredith have been selected by the Head Coach of the Australian Senior National Team, Bert Van Marwijk, in the group of 32 players to join The Socceroos in preparation for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

Meredith has been a near ever-present in The Lions' outstanding Sky Bet Championship campaign and will look to add to his two caps this summer, whilst Cahill will seek a fourth consecutive World Cup appearance.

The 32-man squad will be cut down to 26 on 19th May as The Socceroos assemble for a training camp in Antalya, Turkey, before taking on Czech Republic in Austria on 1st June.

The final 23-man squad will then be submitted on 4th June, before Australia meet Hungary in Budapest prior to taking on France, Denmark and Peru in the group stages in Russia.
