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.
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.
