Jackson Irvine arrived in Qatar dressed as one of Australia’s greatest goal scorers Mark Viduka in a Celtic jersey.

As Australia arrived into Qatar, they are set for a tough campaign with Denmark, Tunisia and world champions France all in their group D of the competition.

Irvine and his teammates get their campaign underway on Tuesday as they take on France, as they aim to get out of the group stages for the first time since 2006.

Celtic fans will have a soft spot for Australia going into the tournament, with manager Ange Postecoglou from Australia, while Irvine has also played for Celtic.

Having signed from Celtic from Melbourne Victory, Jackson Irvine made one senior appearance, before having success with other Scottish teams in Hibernian, Ross County and Kilmarnock.

Viduka's Legacy

Viduka is both an icon for this country and Celtic, where he scored 41 goals in 48 appearances for the Scottish champions before moving to Leeds United.

Jackson Irvine and his teammates will be hoping to replicate Viduka’s success with his country at the World Cup. The former Celtic striker captained his country to their first World Cup in 32 years in 2006.

Australia reached the last 16 of the tournament that year, exiting the competition to winners that year Italy thanks to a late Francesco Totti goal.
