Brett Holman says he may look at moving on from Aston Villa if Australia qualifies for the 2014 World Cup.
The Socceroos take on Iraq in Sydney on Tuesday night for an automatic berth at next year's finals in Brazil and if they do achieve that, the 29-year old midfielder may be forced to consider his club future.
Holman spent almost the entire second half of last season on the bench and cannot allow that to occur next season if he wants to prepare properly for the World Cup.
"Considering what happens after Tuesday night and, obviously if we get a win, I'll have to look at the best place where I'll play football," Holman said.
"I have to be playing to be fit. If that's at Villa then so be it, if not, then so be it as well.
"I've still got two more years at Villa, so it's not as if I'm in a panic situation where I'm looking for a club and I'm desperately looking to get out.
"We'll just see what happens next season."
