Darren Fletcher’s twin sons are part of an international struggle between England and Scotland.

As reported in The Sun, the neighbouring countries are trying to persuade the twins, Jack and Tyler, to represent them internationally.

Dad, Darren, proudly represented the tartan army 80 times during his career, captaining the side on 34 occasions.

Scotland appears to be in the driving seat, having picked the duo at under 16 level, but, as with all nations, you can change allegiance until the point of having a full international cap.

With the twins likely to follow their Dad onto the international scene, could they jump to the other side of Manchester at club level and represent United, where Fletcher is currently Director of Football.

Fletcher joined United as a teenager and spent twenty years at the club, racking up almost 350 games.

The midfield man enjoyed a wonderful career, winning five Premier League titles and a Champions League medal in 2008.
