Tim Cahill has praised the up-tempo style that Ange Postecoglou has implemented in the Socceroos squad.
The Socceroos striker was proud of his team-mates 'full throttle' approach to the game, as they overturned their loss in Amman against Jordan with a 5-1 thrashing.
“I’m very proud. I believe in Ange…I believed form the very start and so do the boys,” Cahill told Fox Sports.
“When you stick to a philosophy, you see the way we press, teams can’t live with us.
“You see how fit we are as well. It’s an amazing feeling to be out there and enjoy our football.
"That’s what we want to be known for, our football, our philosophy and the vision of what we’re doing.”
After failing to get game time in Adelaide, Cahill showed his hunger with two goals, but understood that the national side was slowly starting to burgeon in depth.
“The depth is unbelievable. You saw what we did the other night against Tajikistan and you saw what we did tonight,” Cahill said.
“We just have to wait our turn and make sure we’re ready. Everyone that plays a part knows it’s for the longer cause and that to qualify for the World Cup.
“And there’s so many young players (Postecoglou) is finding every week,” he added.
"There’s seven players every camp that’s new.
“He’s waking players up, even now there’s players at home wishing that they are here and being a part of it.”
Cahill, who is 36 now, says there’s no time limit on his international career, not ruling out going all the way to Russia 2018 if the Socceroos can qualify, but attests his longevity is due to coach Ange Postecoglou.
“If it wasn’t for Ange I wouldn’t be here,” he said.
“When someone gives you a vision to make a difference and be a mentor, to change football in Australia…we can only do it by playing.
“If he gives me the chance I’m going to try and produce. It’s not about proving people wrong, it’s just about playing the football we know we can play.”comments
