Iain Hume features in Canada’s 3-0 win over Puerto Rico
September 8, 2011

Preston North End striker Iain Hume may speak with a recognisably Scottish twang, but like a plethora of others in the modern game, when it comes to International duty, he doesn’t actually represent the country in which he was born. At one year old, Hume was probably still learning to walk and talk when his parents decided to leave Edinburgh and relocate to Ontario, Canada, but he didn’t ditch haggis for hockey sticks; Hume stayed true to his British roots and developed his football skills. As a Canadian citizen, Hume was eligible to join the international squad and received his first call up in February 2003 when he was playing for Dave Watson’s Tranmere Rovers.
