Harry Kane cherishes 'special' England equaliser against Scotland

Leigh Griffiths' first goals for Scotland were not enough

Leigh Griffiths' first goals for Scotland were not enough

Two Leigh Griffiths free-kicks left England facing a first qualifying defeat since October 2009, only for Kane to volley in a 93rd-minute leveller from substitute Raheem Sterling's left-wing cross.

Harry Kane has set his sights on becoming the permanent England captain after his heroics against Scotland.

The Tottenham Hotspur striker described that as "the most special moment" of his worldwide career, as he complemented captaining the global side for the first time with that key late goal, and thereby showed exactly the type of leadership Gareth Southgate had asked for in the build-up.

To come back from 2-1 down with the whole stadium bouncing and the memories that might have brought for the team, they put that to one side and they came through it. Germany take a stroll Forward Sandro Wagner scored a hat-trick, his first goals for Germany, to lead the world champions to a predictably comfortable 7-0 stroll against minnows San Marino on Saturday.

At this point, the three points looked relatively safe for England; Scotland had barely threatened, and Southgate's side would have been confident they could see the game out. "It looked like we were going to win the game and then like we were going to lose when 2-1 down in stoppage time".

"All of the senior team were crammed around the laptop watching it as we finished training in France". If you manage to score in stoppage time to take something from it, you go away from any game fairly
happy. That's what we've got to show.

"Of course, we studied his free-kicks beforehand, but you have to say well done sometimes and that was certainly the case on Saturday". We know how good this England side are.

Scotland appeared to have secured a first victory over its fierce rival since 1999, but the Premier League's leading scorer for the last two seasons came to his country's rescue.

England trained with the Royal Marines in the build up to the match, and Kane praised the determination of the squad.

"The way the game panned out, it was a good point for us". I know what I want to do and this team has great ambition.

He said: "We're never going to blame each other, we're not that team - the bigger picture is far more important". "It got us back into contention and if we can perform like we did in that match, then we will certainly cause England a few problems".

"The first free-kick is careless, the second free-kick is a slip, so I'm not sure there's a lot we could have done about that".

"I think we do have to win the remaining fixtures", said Robertson.

He said: "We have a lot of competition in the more advanced positions in midfield but we've not got great cover in deeper positions in that department".
