Aussie singer and DJ Havana Brown dropped by Socceroo training and revealed her Dad gave her a special mission this morning.
“I did get the phone call from Dad asking could you please get a photo with Tim Cahill, so I’m pretty sure he’s his favourite," she told a large media contingent at Sunday's session.
“My Dad loves the Socceroos. He follows anything Australian and absolutely loves the Socceroos and is always watching the games.
“And I can hear him from afar screaming and cheering them on.”
Brown added she was surprised by the large turnout of fans at Sunday’s Socceroo Fan Day who were there to watch the team train.
“I didn’t know it’d be so busy! So many fans, it’s great the support.”
Brown and pop band Sheppard will headline the Asian Cup opening ceremony at Melbourne's Rectangular Stadium before the Socceroos kick-off their Cup campaign against Kuwait.
Melbourne-born Brown who is currently in Los Angeles and Brisbane band Sheppard, have had huge hits in Australia over the past 12 months as well as a growing international fan base.
Sheppard’s hit song “Geronimo” has charted in the top 10 in several Asian markets and Brown recently hit number one on the US dance charts with her song “Warrior”.
“I’m nervous now just thinking about it,” Brown said when quizzed about the opening ceremony next Friday night.
“With all the dancers and kids, I’ve been in preparation and rehearsal but to see it all come together will be insane!”
