Tim Cahill ready to answer Ange Postecoglou's striker call

Australian midfielder Tim Cahill
With many of Australia's strikers struggling for game time, the Socceroos may once again have to rely on Tim Cahill.

Socceroos talisman Tim Cahill says he's ready to lead Australia's line in next month's World Cup qualifiers.

With Jamie Maclaren's international career in its infancy, Matthew Leckie enduring a protracted national team goal drought, Apostolos Giannou, Robbie Kruse and Nathan Burns all out of season it's likely that Cahill will play the role of Australia's frontman against Iraq and the United Arab Emirates.

And it's a task the 37-year-old, all-time Socceroos leading goalscorer says he's up for.
