Hearts winger Driver eligible for Scotland

Andrew Driver is now eligible to play for Scotland, Scottish Football Association chief executive Gordon Smith has confirmed.

Smith has been successful in his bid to change the home nations' selection criteria to include players whose only tie to a country is attending school there for five years.

Hearts winger Driver, 21, was born in Lancashire but moved to Scotland as a child, representing them at schoolboy level.

Until now, he was ineligible for the full national team and was snapped up by the England Under-21 side earlier this year. He has previously stated he would love to play for Scotland, who now look set to pursue that option.

Smith said in the Sunday Mail: "The change of criteria for selection has been approved. We now have an agreement with England, Northern Ireland and Wales.

"I thought it unfair to ignore kids who may live here and be educated here after moving to Scotland with their parents.

"I put a proposal forward that if a kid had a minimum of five years of schooling here and a British passport he can play for that particular association.

"The FIFA committee approved it in Rio last week for our four home nations. It now means Driver qualifies to play for Scotland."
