Duke began his career at Central Coast Mariners and was part of a highly period at the club which culminated in them winning the championship in 2013.

The Western Sydney born striker sealed a move to J League side Shimizu S-Pulse in 2015 where he spent four years before returning to Australia to join Western Sydney Wanderers.

He was an instant hit amongst the Wanderers fans, scoring on his debut before being named club captain the following season.

The 2019/20 season saw the 29-year-old score a career high 14 goals and it was not long before another move abroad beckoned, this time it was Saudi Arabian club Al-Taawoun who came calling. In January 2021 Western Sydney Wanderers announced that Duke was returning to the club on loan for the remainder of the season.

Duke made his debut for the Australian senior team in 2013 at the East Asian Cup tournament in a match against South Korea, while scoring his first international goal in the following match against Japan.

The 30-year-old will make his Olympic debut at the Tokyo Games, as a member of the Olyroos.

Best Socceroos moment:

Making his international debut in the 2013 AEFF East Asian Cup, Duke re-payed Holger Osieck's faith scoring in consecutive matches against powerhouse Asian outfits South Korea and Japan.

A-League connection:

Current Socceroos manager Graham Arnold gave Duke his chance in professional football with A-League side Central Coast Mariners where he won a championship in 2013.

He was Western Sydney Wanderers’ captain in the 2019/20 season before he departed for Saudi Arabia.
