When Cahill went down wincing in pain in the first half of Melbourne City's A-League clash against Sydney FC, every Socceroos fan felt their heart sink. The injury described as a 'tweaked ankle' by City trainers puts in doubt Cahill's availability for Australia's vital World Cup qualifier against Honduras on November 10 (November 11 AEDT).Dear Sydney, I love u. I want u to win. but dont u dare injure Cahill. If he gets the ball literally let him walk it into the goal.

He said two of his own "independent physios" have worked on his ankle for the past 48 hours but was unwilling to rule himself fit to play.

"I'm definitely not going to promise anything," Cahill told reporters.

Melbourne City 0 Sydney FC 1: Cahill injury compounds hosts' misery

  Melbourne City 0 Sydney FC 1: Cahill injury compounds hosts' misery Melbourne City lost for the first time in the A-League this season, while Tim Cahill provided Australia with an injury scare.Former Everton star Cahill limped off with an ankle injury in the first half of the contest at AAMI Park and is believed to have been sent for scans to assess the full extent of the damage.

"I understand all the stuff around it with me travelling but I wouldn't be doing it if I thought it was the wrong thing."

Cahill said he was doing everything within his power to reduce the swelling in his ankle, having undergone an MRI scan early on Saturday morning that cleared him of any breaks.

"I've got 20 years of experience of injuries playing at the highest level. You can speed the process with pretty much around the clock work," he said.

"Even when I'm walking in airports I'll have ice packs on my ankle and on the plane ... I'll have machines working on it.

"I make a strong commitment to my body. I'm 38 next month, it's the reason why I'm still playing.

"I take it so seriously because it could be my last few games for the Socceroos.

"It might be a serious injury afterwards, but it's all for a good cause."

The Socceroos will at least have one striker fit and firing after Tomi Juric found the net for Swiss club FC Luzern just hours before making the trip to Honduras.

Juric scored his fifth goal of the season in a 3-0 victory over St Gallen, but had a penalty attempt saved.

It appears Cahill can hope for a late cameo off the bench in San Pedro Sula an absolute best-case scenario.

But if not, he said it was still important he was "in the trenches" with the rest of the team.

"I've been on the phone two weeks prior with Mile Jedinak, just speaking about how it was when we were in Uruguay (in 2005)," he said.

"It's going to be pretty much an eye-opener for these guys.

"It'll be a bit different not being in this sort of situation before."
