Tim Cahill has revealed why new Everton Women signing Hayley Raso’s “great mentality” is perfectly suited to the Club as he backed his compatriot to be a success with the Blues.

Raso has joined the Toffees from Brisbane Roar and will be available for selection from mid-February after competing for Australia in Olympic qualifying matches in China.
“Hayley is very feisty, she is a great footballer and she has a great mentality,” says Cahill.
“She suits Everton so much – she is a workhorse and takes pride in the way she plays. She is engrossed in her football.
“She wants the next challenge in her career. She wants to play at the highest level and she’s a fighter. She is always trying to break barriers and better herself.
“I think she will be a success here. She gives everything on the pitch, she covers every blade of grass and creates and scores goals.
“Her teammates will take to her quickly because of her attitude and I think Everton fans will fall in love with her, just like the Australian fans have.”
