Mark Schwarzer has admitted that he'd like to carry on playing football at the top level for at least another two seasons.
The Australian goalkeeper signed a new deal with Fulham until 2013, thus keeping the in-form David Stockdale out of the side for at least another year. Stockdale, Schwarzer's understudy, has proven himself a strong candidate for the number one spot in the former Middlesbrough stopper's injury induced absence, but the 39 year-old remains resolute and his damningly consistent performances continue to keep Stockdale at arms length.
Now though, his goalkeeping monopoly could carry on yet further."It's great, I am living the dream," Schwarzer said of his reign as Fulham's first choice.
"I am playing football at the highest level and I am almost 40 years old. There are not too many of us that can say that so I am still playing because I love playing.
"As long as you love playing and you're still good enough to play at this level then I want to continue.
"I still have ambitions to go and represent Australia in another World Cup in 2014, that is my ultimate goal and I am working towards it."
