Scotland striker Leigh Griffiths 'gutted' after England's last-gasp leveller

Share

With Hampden Park in raptures after Griffiths's double strike, with free-kicks from 25 yards, Kane saved England from a humiliating loss to their old rivals with his late goal from close range.

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

"Harry will captain the team", Southgate told reporters at his pre-match press conference.

Scotland defender Andrew Robertson believes they can achieve the wins needed from all four remaining qualifiers to secure a place at the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup.

Kane was in again five minutes later with the best chance of the first half, but missed Adam Lallana's cross completely, albeit a ball that was slightly behind him. "Being away with the marines, we spoke a lot about being ready for any situation can happen and if things do take a turn for the worse, be ready for that and never drop our heads".

"There were a lot of positives to take". People can talk about their ability, but you cannot do any more than they did - the personality, character and drive. I was very disappointed with the goals [against Scotland].

"I have got to say it was like watching a heavyweight boxer versus a middleweight".

"But that's why he's a top player".

The wall didn't jump for first free-kick that flew in before they jumped for the second one - but the ball went in between Eric Dier's and Chris Smalling's heads. "Someone else might not have done that". Griffiths' profile south of the border, where he had an underwhelming spell at Wolves earlier in his career, is certainly much higher now and Kane chose to accentuate the positives of his contribution rather than examine England goalkeeper Joe Hart's failure to keep them out. "Joe Hart was never going to play both games", said former England global Danny Mills on the BBC.

"It is not going to allow us to recuperate any points. I was trying to get a good contact on it and side-footed into the net", he told ITV. "It's a disappointing one". Gordon Strachan's side are six points behind Group F leaders England with four fixtures remaining.

"I think it was an important moment for the team, important moment individually for Harry", Southgate said.

"If we are as committed as we were today, we can get the three points".

England come full circle on Tuesday as Gareth Southgate's side finish their season with a trip to France, scene of their disastrous showing a year ago at Euro 2016.

England's breakthrough would arrive with 70 minutes on the clock and just shortly after he was introduced to replace Rashford, Oxlade-Chamberlain darted into the box from the right flank.

He added: 'It was a special feeling for me.

"It might have helped for the first one if the wall had jumped, but it's coulda, shoulda, woulda".
