Harry Kane celebrates scoring England's equaliser in stoppage time

Harry Kane celebrates scoring England's equaliser in stoppage time

After substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had given the Three Lions the lead at Hampden Park, Scotland appeared to be on the brink of securing what would have been a memorable victory following two superbly-struck free-kicks from Leigh Griffiths. The Manchester City outcast drew criticism from some quarters after failing to keep out a pair of late free-kicks from Leigh Griffiths that put England on the brink of a first qualifying defeat since 2009 at Hampden Park, although Southgate insists he was never going to play against France. Kane, captain of England for the first time, volleyed home deep into stoppage time to make it 2-2.

Those failings are fresh in the mind of the man now charge, with former England defender Southgate outlining to his desire to become the world's best upon his permanent appointment as manager.

Scotland next travel to Lithuania and then host Malta and Slovakia, who are four points ahead of Strachan's side in second, before facing Slovenia away from home in their final group game. In the marines, they are life and death situations and we took as much as we could from the game and stood up to be counted.

"[The goal] is definitely up at the top, it was a special day", Kane said on ITV.

"Because the difference of where the players play and the standard we were playing against, the gulf was probably the biggest gap I have seen for a wee while in big games which I have won".

Dry thunderstorms are frequent when falling water evaporates before reaching the ground because of high temperatures. Gomes says 54 people were also injured in the fire, 5 of them seriously, including four firefighters and a minor.

"We come away fairly happy with it and in a good position to qualify for the World Cup".

The Tottenham striker, who has topped the Premier League scoring charts for the past two seasons, is hopeful he will be selected as the new main man for England.

"When I first came into the England squad, Wayne was great with me".

The draw leaves England three points clear at the top of Group F and still on course to reach the finals in Russian Federation next year, while Scotland sit in fourth spot three points behind second-placed Slovenia. "I think it is clear that our record is three knockout wins in 25 years so we now have a young team emerging, a 19- and a 21-year-old in the front line today, they haven't played many matches like this".

"We have to be a team that are never beaten".

"Now you can't take your eye off the immediate goal of being able to get there, but we also can't wait for qualifying and wait until next March before we start working towards things". "If you look at the fixtures we've got, we're capable of winning them all if we can perform like that".

For Scotland, the late heartbreak means their chances of automatic qualification remain remote at best, with the gap to England at six, while they are three points off second.

"Obviously I do not know what the gaffer's feeling is on it".

"I felt we controlled the game for large parts and eventually opened the scoring with about 20 minutes left". I knew we were going to be under the cosh for a lot of the game because England are a great team.
