Germany take on Australia in their opening Confederations Cup clash in Russian Federation today.
The world champions, despite fielding a youthful, experimental side, were rampant in the opening period, with Postecoglou admitting his side were lucky to only be trailing 2-1 at the interval.
Germany then notched up around a dozen unanswered chances without ever managing to establish a cushion.
Cahill, who scored one of the best goals at the 2014 World Cup finals with a cracking volley against the Dutch, could also break the 50-goal mark for Australia in Russian Federation.
"The Confed Cup is like a gift for me", said Germany's head coach Joachim Loew.
The ex-Everton midfielder, 37, is just three short of winning his 100th cap - a milestone he could reach in the three Group B games against Germany, Cameroon and Chile.
"Who'd expect everything to be flawless after only 10 days together?" Loew said through a translator.
"Chile will be a different game, they play with a lot of intensity and we will need to play well over 90 minutes, not just over 60".
Chile's breakthrough was just reward for a dominant performance at the Spartak Stadium, where the South American champions had a goal controversially ruled out for offside by video technology at the end of the first half. "We must improve (and) we will do that".
"I am very satisfied, the boys tried to make things work".
World champions Germany will field an inexperienced line-up against Australia in their Confederations Cup opener today with striker Timo Werner fearing a robust challenge from the Socceroos.
The Socceroos did level matters against the run of play in the 41st minute courtesy of a close range effort from Tom Rogic.
Germany were similarly quick out of the blocks in the second half, scoring on 48 minutes through 22-year-old Schalke midfielder Leon Goretzka.
Rogic's shot from the edge of the area was lacking any real venom and should have been dealt with comfortably by the Bayer Leverkusen goalkeeper, but he spilled the attempt into the path of Juric, who was left with a simple finish to make it 3-2.
The Socceroos recovered from a slow start but fell short of claiming a point against Germany in their opening Group B match at the Confederations Cup.
"We invested a lot in the first half and ran a lot", Germany defender Joshua Kimmich said. That being said, this seems like a game to much for Australia and I think that they will be comfortably beaten by the Germans. Other than a mistake in the build-up to the Australian goal, Draxler was dispensing magic. Australia might be a bit physical and also use their pace against the Germans.
The 28-year-old found an acre of space to volley Julian Brandt's cut-back past Mat Ryan and the inattentive back three.
What Postecoglou does care about is not being given credit for bringing young players into the squad.
