McDonald will draw on Champions League experience

Scott McDonald says he will draw on his European Champions League experiences in a bid to get on the scoresheet for his country. McDonald has hit back from a slow start this season to be among the goals in the Scottish Premier League for Celtic but would like nothing more than to put one in the back of the net for Australia against Uzbekistan tomorrow night in Sydney.

"I know it is spoken about a bit, but I don't think I have anything to prove," McDonald said yesterday.

"I think I have shown over the last few years with Celtic, whether it is in the league or the Champions League, what I can do.

"That is especially the case in the Champions League, which is arguably the biggest competition, or at least up there with the World Cup.

"That would be nice and a great honour," he said of scoring tomorrow night.

"It is a big game on Wednesday and they are the type of games you want to score in.

"Whatever happens, happens. I just want to be part of the team, play well and contribute to us getting a step closer to the World Cup. That is the ultimate goal. I want to play in the World Cup finals. I watched what the boys did last time (in Germany) and I want to be part of that experience."
