Blackburn Rovers midfielder Brett Emerton has declared his allegiance to Australia´s Asian Cup challenge despite a potential overlap with the Ewood Park side´s Intertoto Cup campaign.

The Socceroos are among the favourites to win the Asian Cup and should Graham Arnold´s side reach the July 29 final in Jakarta, the continental showdown would clash with the potentially lucrative Intertoto Cup.

Emerton told The Sydney Daily Telegraph: "I will definitely be at the Asian Cup and I may miss the Intertoto Cup which won´t make Blackburn happy."
