Zaliukas will be at the heat of the Lithuanian defence as they take on Bosnia & Herzegovina in a huge match, as victory for the visitors would see them book their place at the World Cup finals.

Former Hearts star Zaliukas, 29, is a free agent, having turned down a move to Rangers last month and has since been in England training with Queens Park Rangers.

QPR are keen on striking a deal for the central defender, but a number of other Premier League and Championship clubs showing an interest and Zaliukas has kept his options open so far.

Zaliukas is hoping to finalise a deal after returning from World Cup duty, and his performance against Bosnia could go a long way to deciding his future.

His representative Barry Hughes confirmed to Sky Sports: "We have been told by a number of clubs that they will be taking the opportunity to watch Marius, and it is hard to think of a better match when you consider it is a crucial World Cup qualifier.

"Marius for his part is not thinking about any clubs at the moment, he is focused on Lithuania and will only think about his future when he returns to Britain later this week."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
