Departing Fulham veteran Schwarzer to make new plans after Australia duties

Mark Schwarzer will wait to make a decision on his future until after Australia's World Cup qualifiers.

The 40-year old goalkeeper has been released by Fulham after five years at Craven Cottage but won't consider the next phase of his career before Tuesday's vital clash with Jordan in Melbourne and next week's meeting with Iraq in Sydney which will determined the Socceroos' chances of making it to Brazil.

''I haven't got any plans at this stage at all,'' he told The Sydney Morning Herald.

''My full focus has been on the Socceroos. I've got another nine or 10 days in camp and hopefully we qualify for Brazil and then after that's all over with, I'll think about what I'll do with my club (future).

''It's always been a priority for me to be playing but it all depends on the next few days. My belief is that we'll get to Brazil. We're quietly confident, but it's a massive task. I'll assess my situation after that.''
