Mark Schwarzer has no plans to retire

Fulham's Mark SchwarzerFulham goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer has no plans to hang up his boots, and is eager to play for at least another two years.

The Australia international is pushing towards 40, but nevertheless he is keen to keep playing at the highest level.

“It’s great, I am living the dream,” the veteran stopper told Sky Sports.

“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,” he concluded.

Schwarzer’s current deal at Craven Cottage runs until the summer of 2013.
