Australia's all-time leading goalscorer seems unlikely to contend for a starting berth in Russia despite heroics in World Cup qualifying that booked the Socceroos a place in Russia.

Cahill, who at 38 is the fourth-oldest player at the tournament, started both of the home qualifiers in successful playoffs with Syria and Honduras last year.

His impeccable international credentials include goals at the last three World Cups.

But a lack of game time may have marked his card with the incoming Dutch coach, who has is yet to start the striker in one of his three friendlies to date, and isn't likely to against Hungary in Australia's last warm-up match on Saturday night (Sunday morning AEST).

"Everybody knows Tim's situation. I've spoken to him a few times. It's very clear the situation between us," van Marwijk told AAP.

"Maybe I will let him play for a period (against Hungary).

"He needs it but he will not become a better player by one game.

"The problem was already in the last half-year."

That unspecified 'problem' is a lack of game-time at club level.

After severing ties with A-League club Melbourne City, Cahill struck a romantic move home to former club Millwall in England's second tier.

Cahill has just over an hour of football in 10 substitute appearances for the club in the last six months.

That doesn't mean he won't be a weapon for Australia in Russia, with van Marwijk very aware of his qualities.

"When I need him he must be ready. We've discussed that and he's ready for that. If it's thirty seconds or thirty minutes, when I need him he will be ready," he said.

Bert van Marwijk has hinted at a bit-part role for Socceroos great Tim Cahill at the FIFA World Cup. Cahill , who at 38 is the fourth-oldest player at the tournament, started both of the home qualifiers in successful playoffs with Syria and Honduras last year.

The ex-Netherlands national team boss has released the pressure valve in Antalya, calling an end to the high-intensity hot weather sessions that have conditioned his squad over the past three weeks.

Six days after their date with the world No.49s comes their World Cup campaign against France, leading van Marwijk to taper off the heavier sessions.

"We will now come into a new rhythm," van Marwijk said.

"On Thursday it is two days before the game and I always play a tactical game of eleven v eleven two days before the game. Not so high intensity," he said.

Tomi Juric's return to fitness has the Socceroos with a clean bill of health, something van Marwijk was delightfully surprised with given the hot-weather climate.

"I'm very happy that there have been few little problems, that everybody's fit," he said.

"Is it a gamble? Always.

"We are thinking and speaking a lot about what we are doing and what the risk is. Until now I think we did the right things and we were also a bit lucky."
