Cahill ready for World Cup test

England international Gary Cahill has expressed his happiness over playing for England in this summer's World Cup finals in Brazil.

The talented Chelsea centre-back will play in his first major tournament, having missed on Euro 2012 with a fractured jaw.

Cahill, who will likely be playing alongside Everton's Phil Jagielka in the central defensive position, has said that he is enjoying the prospect of playing as a regular for the Three Lions.

"I feel a lot more experienced," Cahill said."I feel I know the role a lot better, I feel that I'm kind of accepted on this stage and I still want to keep learning and pushing forward.

"Since I've come to Chelsea I've enjoyed it, it's gone really well for me, and I can't get wait to get started in my first major competition with England, which will be very exciting."

Cahill has been capped 23 times by the Three Lions.
