Cahill: No Second Thoughts

The Australian has no doubts if required to take an FA Cup final penalty.

Cahill: No Second Thoughts

Tim Cahill would have no second thoughts about taking an FA Cup final penalty.

The Australian set Everton nerves jangling when he missed the first spot kick of the semi-final shootout against Manchester United.

But the Toffees still triumphed and Cahill insists he'd be happy to step forward again should the scenario be repeated against Chelsea on Saturday.

The 29-year-old midfielder explained that he now feels a responsibility to lead his side by example.

"I will step up. I have to," Cahill told evertonTV in an exclusive, candid interview. "I have taken so many penalties on the practice pitch. For me now, I believe it is going to happen.

"This could be my time. Hopefully it won't go to penalties and someone scores before then and saves me the anguish.

"If need be, I will take one. I've crossed the line and there's no turning back now."

Since arriving in 2004, Cahill has grown into an integral part of David Moyes' team - a player who is the epitome of the very ethos of Everton.

It's a role he relishes.

"You can't buy what we have got here - great character and great experience," he said.

"I feel that I have been here a long time and I love the leadership role with players relying on me, and me having to come up with the goods.

"Everyone in the squad has their own charisma and it fits. I feel responsible when we lose; I feel more responsible for the bad stuff than the good stuff.

"I felt responsible when I missed that penalty but I felt responsible to take it in the first place. The best thing about football is the highs, but that is the low and if I can come through that then I can come through anything."
