England draw was one of the "most emotional games ever" for Strachan

Postado Junho 11, 2017

Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane netted a dramatic stoppage-time equaliser to rescue a point for England in their latest 2018 World Cup qualifier against Scotland at Glasgow's Hampden Park on Saturday (10 June).

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had given England the lead in the 70th minute after some poor Scotland defending, but Griffiths picked the flawless moment to break his global duck in his 13th cap.

But two sumptuous free-kicks from Leigh Griffiths in the final three minutes looked to have given Scotland a stunning turnaround victory.

But Kane - named England captain with Wayne Rooney omitted from the squad - levelled deep into injury time from Raheem Sterling's cross to earn a point.

It kept an unimpressive England on course for next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation and dealt a savage blow to Scotland's already dwindling chances, BBC reports. "We have four games left and we could win all of them".

Kane said: "We're relatively happy with the draw".

Oxlade-Chamberlain had his back to goal outside the box but turned and rode Brown's challenge and got space to shoot from 15 yards after Armstrong ran into Tierney.

"I've seen them play under Southgate and they have not been as comfortable as you would expect an England team to be".

England hardly sparkled against an industrious and spirited Scotland side in the Group F qualifier but Southgate believes they showed they have the right personality to get results in testing environments.

The 2-2 result sees England retain top-spot in Group F, three points clear of Slovenia, while Scotland's sit in fourth place. Vocal Scotland supporters prepared to savour what would have been their 42nd victory in 114 meetings with England, but were silenced in the dying embers when the prolific Kane cushioned home a volley from close range not long after Gordon had beaten away a powerful Dier free-kick.

However, there would be late heartbreak for Scotland as Kane, captaining his country for the first time, directed home superbly in stoppage time to secure a 2-2 draw.

"If we are as committed as we were today, we can get the three points". We proved in the fixture at Wembley (England's 3-0 win in November) how much it meant to us.

"There is no bigger worldwide game for us". "But you cant switch off against this England side, because they will punish you and that is what they did in the end".

"He's going to be disappointed with conceding any goal but we'll have to look at the goals again".

"Whatever anybody thinks about us as a group of players, one thing you can't question is their personality, character and commitment".

The Three Lions looked on course for the three points when Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain stepped off the substitutes' bench and fired them ahead with 20 minutes remaining.

He said: "We were speaking about it the other day, the "get intae them" kind of theory, which a lot of people in Scotland are desperate for us to do when I meet them as I go about. We should never gotten into that position with the amount of quality in our side".
