Australia´s Tim Cahill is preparing to take a giant stride forward in his bid to recover from a foot injury ahead of the Socceroos´ debut in the Asian Cup.

The Everton midfielder fractured the fifth metatarsal on his left foot against Sheffield United at the start of March, having only recently returned from an 11-week lay-off with a knee injury, and is now eyeing a berth in Graham Arnold´s team for the opening Asian Cup game against Oman on July 8.

"I don´t want to get ahead of myself too much, but I´m quietly confident, I´m happy," Cahill told The Sydney Morning Herald. "Before I left England, there was quite a bit of a gap between the bone and the pin [in his foot], but these X-rays show a massive improvement. If anything, the bone looks as though it´s healed over 80%."
