Walsall striker Simeon Jackson was named among the starting XI as Canada took on Scotland in an international friendly at Hibernian's Easter Road stadium.

The Canucks started the game well and took the lead via Fraser Aird after eleven minutes. The Falkirk defender doing well to be on the end of Maxim Tissot's left-wing cross.

Norwich City attacker Steven Naismith levelled the score ten-minutes before the break. The former Kilmarnock, Rangers and Everton midfielder was on hand to deflect a shot past a helpless Simon Thomas in the Canada goal.

Saddlers striker Jackson, who has now earned 49 international caps, had a few chances in front of goal but was unable to score before being substituted after seventy-six minutes with FC Edmonton forward Ben Fisk taking his place in the side.

There were no further goals as the game ended all-square.
