"I'm happy for him. He's a great player, I think he can go so far in this game," Cacace said.

"He's given us the belief to do it ourselves."

Cacace's made no secret of his desire to follow in Singh's footsteps to Europe.

He's hoping the A-League re-start will act as a shop window of sorts.

"There are going to be so many eyes watching the A-League.

"I think it's a great opportunity for young ones here, not just in the Phoenix, but the whole league."
