Millwall pair edge closer to World Cup

TIM Cahill and James Meredith have made the cut for Australia's pre-World Cup training camp in Turkey. 

Socceroos manager Bert van Marwijk has pared his preliminary 32-man squad down to 26 and the Lions duo will be hopping to survive one more cull to make it to Russia.

Cahill, 38, is hoping to feature in his fourth World Cup, Meredith, 30, his first.

Meanwhile, Lions stopper Jordan Archer is in Scotland's squad for their international friendlies against Peru and Mexico.
