‘I’m not going to be sitting up every night this week worrying about this (FA) Cup final on Saturday. The same with England. I’ll wake up on Wednesday and see if I’m in.

‘If I’m in, I’ll go and give everything I’ve got. If I’m not in, I’ll go away with my family and reflect and rest. They’ll make the decision they want to make.

‘I couldn’t do anything when I was out of the (Chelsea) team.

‘When I was back in the team and got back to the levels I’m ready to perform at, when I got back in I was doing it time and time again.

‘I’ve just got to perform as best I can, which I’ve tried to do in the last five, six weeks, to put myself back in the frame. If it’s good enough, it’s good enough… if it’s not, it’s not.’

Cahill, who boasts 58 caps, thinks it is only a matter of time before the Three Lions are successful at a tournament.

‘It’s more experienced than it was two years ago,’ he said. ‘We’ve got a few lads now that have won a title, a few lads gearing up for the Champions League final.

‘It’s gained experience from two years ago. If that will be enough or not, I’m not sure. Sooner or later a tournament will be successful. You just want to be a part of that time when it is successful.’
