Kane silences Scotland's celebration with late leveller

Adjust Comment Print

Leigh Griffiths scored two late free-kicks - his first worldwide goals - to cancel out Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's opener and leave Scotland on the brink of a crucial win in Group F.

England captain Harry Kane was proud of the way his side dug deep to avoid a chastening defeat to Scotland.

"It is a special day", said Tottenham Hotspur striker Kane, whose side had taken the lead through Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain goal in the 70th minute. To go 2-1 behind out of the blue like that with two special free-kicks from Griffiths, it was unbelievable character to come back a get a point. "For me it was great to get that goal and be captain but whoever the gaffer chooses, there are plenty of leaders".

Scotland suffered late heartbreak against England on Saturday evening as Harry Kane's late equaliser rescued a point for the Three Lions.

Andrew Robertson believes Scotland can finish their 2018 World Cup qualification campaign with the four wins they might well need to get to Russian Federation.

"All of the senior team were crammed around the laptop watching it as we finished training in France".

Kane's goal was the Tottenham Hotspur striker's sixth in 18 worldwide appearances and came at the end of his first game under Southgate, after injuries had kept him out of England's six previous matches.

"We did that and it was a real quality finish under pressure to get the point".

"We just tried to take as much as we could from what they told us into our game and I think we stood up and were counted". Wayne Rooney was England's captain when he held a regular place in the team and Chelsea defender Gary Cahill skippered the side for England's March friendly against Germany in Dortmund.

Hart, ostracised by Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola and likely to leave the Premier League club this summer, was also guilty of high-profile mistakes during last summer's European Championships as England were embarrassingly eliminated by Iceland.

"The way the game panned out, it was a good point for us".

"We've come into a hostile atmosphere; we've controlled the game completely".

England manager Gareth Southgate said his team's last-gasp 2-2 draw against Scotland demonstrated the kind of mental fortitude he is trying to instil in his players.

England remain top of Group F in the qualifying campaign, while Scotland stay fourth in the group.

He added: "I think that is fair (we need to be more clinical)". These guys are giants and they are playing at a different level to most of us and they kept coming back, with their strength and power and speed it is hard to deal with.

"We are in pole position and it's in our hands".
