Tim Cahill has issued a warning to his Australian team-mates ahead of the looming qualifiers for the 2014 FIFA World Cup Brazil.
The Socceroo's will begin their quest for a third successive appearance on the world stage on 8 June in Oman, before a home game against Japan four days later. Iraq and Jordan also make up Group B, with the top two to secure qualification for Brazil 2014.
Despite Australia reaching the last two FIFA World Cups and currently being ranked Asia's number one in the FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking, Timmy believes the Socceroo's face an enormous challenge.
The Blue Kangaroo said: 'I don't like to get carried away because the Asian group's one of the hardest.'
'This is going to be one the biggest tests of the national team. People really need to understand that, yes we have a great squad, defensively we could be a lot better. Attackingly, getting Bresciano back is going to be fantastic.'
'We're an okay team, we're not unbelievable ... we need to make sure we know that.'
'I don't like to get carried away. There is going to some tough games, but let's see what happens over the coming games. Hopefully we can ride a wave and do something special.'
Timmy is Australia's leading goalscorer amongst current players, having scored 24 goals in 55 internationals.
Good luck Tim.
