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

England captain Harry Kane describes his side's 2-2 draw with Scotland as a point gained having scored a 93rd-minute equaliser at Hampden Park.

It looked as though the Three Lions were on course for a routine three points when substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was the beneficiary of poor goalkeeping from Craig Gordon with 20 minutes remaining.

For Kane, captaining England for the first time, the experience was one to remember.

Scotland can still qualify for the World Cup finals in Russian Federation, despite the "bitter disappointment" of conceding a late equaliser to England, according to defender Christophe Berra.

This Saturday, June 10, 2017 (9:00 AM Pacific) Scotland will host England at Hampden Park in Glasgow, Scotland in a UEFA World Cup qualifier. We've got to take the finish.

Kane ruthlessly finished Raheem Sterling's superb cross to deny Scotland a historic win but said being told he was captain was the most special moment.

Southgate, trying to rebuild England's confidence after last year's Euro 2016 humiliation by Iceland, said his players' perseverance in the face of improbable odds was a sign that they are on the right path.

"We come away fairly happy with it and in a good position to qualify for the World Cup". Griffiths teed up Robertson at the edge of the penalty area, but he ends up wasting such a massive opportunity as he sent the ball well over the crossbar.

Kane, 23, has enjoyed a great 2016/17 campaign for Spurs, scoring 29 goals in the Premier League.

"When I first came into the England squad, Wazza was great with me", said Kane.

A draw leaves England top of Group F, with Slovenia three points back and Slovakia able to cut the gap to two with victory over Lithuania. Even as I was doing well with my club he was giving me a little phone call or text to say "things could change for you as you play more and get bigger".

Manager Gareth Southgate has revealed it is now his intention to appoint a permanent skipper with Wayne Rooney's worldwide career as good as over and Kane said: 'I would love to be England captain.

"I definitely did not want to lose in my first game as skipper, so to get that goal, it is a good day for us and a very proud day for me as well".

And Southgate was disappointed England only emerged with a point in a game he felt they controlled.

"We have four games left and four very winnable games and as long as we take the performances from the last two games we will give ourselves a great chance".

"I don't think there's anything Joe Hart could have done about them and you just have to give credit where it is due".

"But we played a team with five at the back, tried to frustrate which is understandable from their point of view". "I was quite late reacting to it, I didn't see it until late on and had to swing an arm at it, but didn't get enough on it to keep it out. All sorts of emotions", Strachan told reporters.
