Mark Viduka's international career appears to be over after the former Australia captain was left out of Pim Verbeek's 30-man squad for the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ qualifiers against Qatar, Bahrain and Japan next month.
The forward, who has not played for the Socceroos since the AFC Asian Cup 2007, has managed to work his way back to full fitness and played a handful of games for Newcastle United this season.
However, the 33-year-old's club future is uncertain following the Magpies' relegation from the English Premier League, while Verbeek's decision not to include him in his squad for the three matches in June all but ends an international career which has spanned 43 games.
Youngsters Rhys Williams and Dario Vidosic come into the squad for the first time, with the former recently pledging his allegiance to Australia after being courted by Wales.
Middlesbrough goalkeeper Brad Jones gets a recall, while Vince Grella, who missed the most recent game against Uzbekistan, is also back in the squad.
Tim Cahill is named, but will not join the camp in Dubai until after he finishes his FA Cup commitments with Everton.
