ENGLAND and Scotland are locked in an international battle over Darren Fletcher’s twin sons, Tyler and Jack.
The teenage talent, 15, is in Manchester City’s academy and has already been chosen for her father’s home country.
However, England have also asked them to train and watch the FA line-up as they qualify as they were born south of the border.
The midfielders have a decision to make despite having time to tie as it’s possible to switch allegiances before making a competitive debut as a senior.
Scotland have called the duo into their most recent U16 squad but they can trade like other kids before them.
However, this would be a great loss for Scotland as father Darren was a skipper in the Tartan Army.
He has played 80 times for them, making him the third most played Scot behind Sir Kenny Dalglish (102) and Jim Leighton (91).
Darren is now technical director at United while his boys are at City.
Other former Scottish players have also seen their sons play for England’s age group teams.
Bryan Gunn and David Weir are among those whose boys, Angus and Jensen, chose to join the Three Lions.
