Everton Football Club will bring a squad brimming with Goodison park favourites for the Everton Down Under 2010 tour next month.

The touring party includes a full strength Everton squad other than players participating in the 2010 FIFA World Cup.

The only World Cup exception is Qantas Socceroo Tim Cahill, who has confirmed that he will play in Sydney and Melbourne matches subject to his commitments for the national team.

The side will be led by captain and former England player Phil Neville, with Everton-s longstanding manager, David Moyes, and goalkeeping coach (and former England international), Chris Woods part of the coaching and support team.

The squad not only includes Cahill, who announced a new four year deal with Everton just prior to his departure for South Africa, but also Russian winger Diniyar Bilyaletdinov, and Frenchman Louis Saha.

The exciting Belgian international midfielder, Marouane Fellaini, who spent most of the last season out with a serious ankle injury, is also named in the touring party and is expected to make his much-awaited comeback in Australia.

“I am totally focused on Australia and our World Cup journey,” Cahill said from South Africa.

“But it-s a dream for me that my Club, Everton, is visiting my country as part of the pre-season preparations.

“It-s massive. It-s non-stop football and it-s great for fans, and great for the A-League too.”

Everton will meet Melbourne Heart FC at Etihad Stadium on July 14, with tickets available from Ticketmaster (www.ticketmaster.com.au). Discounts are available for groups of ten or more people.
