Darren Fletcher's twin sons line-up against each other in game between England and Scotland

Darren Fletcher's twin sons lined-up against each other in a recent international friendly between England and Scotland.

Tyler and Jack, who both play for Manchester City's academy, were selected for Stuart Glennie’s under-16 Scotland squad in August last year.

But months later, the brothers went head-to-head in an under-16 tournament in Paphos, Cyprus last week, after Jack was called up to play in midfield for the Three Lions.

England earned a straightforward 3-0 win against the Scots, but it was the Fletcher twins that inevitably grabbed the headlines.

Jack, 15, took to Instagram after the game to express his delight at picking up an assist against Stuart Glennie’s side.

The lads are both highly regarded at reigning Premier League champions Manchester City. In fact, England U16 international Jack, who plays in midfield like his father, has already played for City's under-18 side.

Back in December, it was reported that the Fletcher twins are expected to sign professional contracts at the Etihad.

The Daily Mail also claim former United midfielder Fletcher, who lifted five Premier League titles with the Reds before being appointed technical director, is "happy" for the twins to choose their own path into the game.

It may be seen as unusual for the sons of a Manchester United legend to join their local rivals, but it has become a regular theme in recent years.

Wayne Rooney, Robin van Persie and Andy Cole have all previously chosen to place their kids at City, while Phil Neville was also keen for son Harvey to ply his trade at the Citizens before joining MLS outfit Inter Miami.
