Full power: Niall McGinn rates his goal on Sunday as his best ever

Niall McGinn has told Northern Ireland manager Ian Baraclough that he would relish a shot at Bulgaria and would be confident he could deliver for him in tomorrow's crunch World Cup qualifier at Windsor Park.

Not for the first time in his 13-year international career, McGinn delivered a moment of magic when he scored a breathtaking goal in Sunday's 2-1 friendly defeat to USA in Belfast.

Post-match, the Aberdeen winger couldn't - nor did he want to - disguise his disappointment at originally being put on standby for Northern Ireland's triple header this month.
