The Scotland forward Steven Naismith could miss next month's World Cup qualifiers against Wales and Belgium after Fifa opened disciplinary proceedings over an off-the-ball incident during the goalless draw with Serbia.

Everton's Naismith faces a three-match ban over an alleged elbow on Serbia's Srdan Mijailovic.

Television pictures show him raising his arm towards Mijailovic in the World Cup qualifier at Hampden earlier this month.
