Mark Schwarzer is hoping that he can sort his future soon in order to win a place in the Australia team for the 2014 World Cup.

Free agent Mark Schwarzer has admitted that he could be forced to join a club abroad in order to play at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

The Australian was released by Fulham at the end of the season, following the arrival of Netherlands stopper Maarten Stekelenburg from Roma on a four-year deal.

With the international tournament less than a year away, the 40-year-old is hopeful that he can sort his future sooner rather than later.

"Hopefully in the next couple of weeks something will be sorted," Schwarzer told SBS. "At the moment I am just weighing a few things up.

"There have been some offers and it's possible I could stay in England or move abroad. There are a few possibilities. Nothing concrete has been signed or sealed yet but I am feeling confident about next season leading towards Brazil.

"A lot of the decisions I have made about my future have cantered around the national team and now that we have qualified for another World Cup my top priority is finding a club in the lead-in and getting as much game time as possible. I always believed we would get there, though at times it's been a rocky path but we got there in the end."

Schwarzer played over 150 times for Fulham.
