He has earned 4 caps for Australia, scoring 2 goals in the 2013 EAFF East Asian Cup. He began brightly at the Wanderers adding spark to an otherwise lacklustre attack reliant on Oriol Riera and was named Captain for the 2019/20 season. He left at the end of the season to pursue a lucrative offer from Saudi Arabia, played 13 games there before coming back to the Wanderers for the remainder of the 2020/21 season on loan. He performed well enough to earn a call up to the Australian National team for their June 2021 World Cup Qualifiers.

I think Arnie not only pick him but also play him were still limited up front with only Maclaren and Taggart as our options. Giannou has fallen off the face of the Earth and Juric glass body looks like he won't be back in green and gold. Alou Kuol, Mo Toure and maybe Wenzel Halls would be the only competition for Duke unless someone else is lighting it up overseas

Rukavysta has been doing well in Israel, until recently at least. He had a 1-2 month period of not scoring, but he did just score in his final ladder match and took out the golden boot. Weirdly he almost doubled the next top scorer, 17 to 9...

That's right so we have 3 at least that would be starters. Still with Duke's versatility and current form I can't see how he doesn't get picked in this extended squad by Arnie whose a massive fan of Duke

Against some of the less physical and more technical Asian opponents I feel like Duke would be a decent option, particularly under crosses, high balls, set pieces etc.
