v Tranmere Rovers

June - 2005

June - 2005

June is normally the quietest month of the year at a football club.

But for Everton, June 2005 was filled with talk of Champions League draws, new signings and the exciting season that lay ahead.

No sooner had the 2004/05 campaign ended than the focus turned to the new season. The signing of Simon Davies from Tottenham in the first week of the transfer window being re-opened sent out a signal to the rest of the Premiership.

It was also a month in which a number of Everton's senior stars tasted international action.

For Tim Cahill, it was an opportunity to enjoy a dress-rehearsal ahead of Australia's return to a World Cup finals in 2006.

The midfielder was part of the Australian side that took part in the Confederations Cup. They faced Germany, Argentina and Tunisia in their group as part of a mini-tournament aimed as a warm-up for the World Cup.

Australia lost each of their matches, with Cahill figuring in each of the games including a narrow 4-3 defeat to Germany and a thrilling 4-2 defeat to Argentina.

Nigerian international Joseph Yobo was also in action during this month, as was David Weir and soon-to-be Everton player Phil Neville.
