SINGAPORE - He had not had a bite for more than 24 hours, but Indra Sahdan was in no hurry to touch the plate of chicken rice that was in front of him.

Sat slumped in a bed at the Raffles Hospital last Wednesday night, the 34-year-old national striker was understandably downcast.

The Home United player broke his left leg in the Lions' 1-0 defeat by Hong Kong in an international friendly on Tuesday, and will be out of action for at least six months.

The veteran is worried his career is over, although he insists he will not quit football just yet.

"Of course I've thought about my future," he told The New Paper on Wednesday.

"Next year, I'll already be 35.

"And my contract with Home United is up at the end of the year.

"But I just don't want to think about it too much yet.

"Coach Lee (Lim Saeng, Home head coach) has been supporting me and telling me to take care, and I just want to focus on my recovery now."

Indra was rushed to a hospital in Hong Kong straight from the match and had his left leg put in a cast.
