Viduka has yet to decide if he is going to call time on his international career, but at least he escapes the club-versus-country row that is brewing. 

The Australia coach has named Premiership players in a provisional squad for the World Cup qualifier in China on March 26 which falls between two league fixtures.

Newcastle youngster James Troisi (pictured) is included.

Everton midfielder Tim Cahill, Blackburn's Brett Emerton, Harry Kewell (Liverpool), West Ham's Lucas Neill, Middlesbrough goalkeeper Mark Schwarzer, Mile Sterjovski (Derby), Reading's Adam Federici and James Troisi (Newcastle) have all been named by coach Pim Verbeek.

Celtic's Scott McDonald and Championship players Nick Carle (Bristol City), David Carney (Sheffield United) and Patrick Kisnorbo (Leicester) are also in the 21-man squad for the game against China in Kunming on March 26.
