Viduka could quit
Aussie veteran Mark Viduka could be approaching the end of this international career after he admitted that he would like to spend more time with his family.
Viduka told the Herald Sun: "I don't want to leave it [a decision] lingering. It's not fair on my part to be like that,"
"I'm still thinking and I've got to weigh things up.
"Family's the big issue. Playing internationally is physically demanding, and after the Asian Cup the World Cup qualifiers will be very demanding.
"The timing of the games will make it almost impossible for us (Australian international footballers playing abroad) guys to play.
"FFA's in a transitional period now and a lot of things are still up in the air, they're talking about a new coach."
Current Australia manager Graham Arnold added: "I don't want him to retire. He's in great form and, at just 31, I believe he should take it one year at a time,"
"Hopefully he will wait until we have a ready-made replacement because he will be invaluable to our World Cup qualifying programme.
"It's not easy. I would like Mark and some of the older players to continue because we'll need a big squad in qualifying for 2010. Their experience will be invaluable."
