Gareth Southgate heartened by England's resolve

Gareth Southgate heartened by England's resolve

The Scots led 2-1 after two magnificent Leigh Griffiths free-kicks in the last three minutes of normal time followed an opening goal from England substitute Alex Oxlade Chamberlain on 70 minutes.

However, Hampden Park erupted in the 87th minute when Leigh Griffiths curled home a 25-yard free-kick for his first worldwide goal, before lightning struck twice in the final minute of normal time as another set-piece from the Celtic star put Scotland on the brink of a famous Group F victory. The Tartan Army booed God Save The Queen and England fans chanted against home manager Gordon Strachan but were silenced by Leigh Griffiths' double, although Harry Kane's late leveller had the smiles back.

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.

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. "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". I will look at the players and tell them you have to keep coming back and taking knocks like that. Now we have more massive games but all winnable games and we will give it our all.

"This is a tough place to come".

Kane was handed the armband by Three Lions coach Gareth Southgate in the absence of Wayne Rooney, whose worldwide career appears to be winding down.

"The first one has come through a lot of bodies", he said.

"I think it's a huge moment for the team", said the former defender, whose side remain on top of Uefa qualifying Group F with 14 points from six games. 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".

He was wounded in a gunfight with Capitol Hill police armed with pistols who were at the scene, lawmakers said. Police say Hodgkinson was carrying an assault weapon similar to an M-4 rifle and a handgun in the attack.

Kane got two sights of goal when the visitors managed to penetrate.

"We should never gotten into that position with the amount of quality in our side". We have a great point against a very good England side who, no doubt, will be going to the World Cup.

England looked more unsafe on the rare occasions they got their opponents turning and Kane had another half chance, with Craig Gordon stranded after coming out of box to head away a long ball.

"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".

Just when the "Auld Enemy" thought that Scotland have sealed three points, Kane, who was given the captaincy by manager Gareth Southgate, rescued his side with a close-range finish from Raheem Sterling's cross.

"We look at set-plays and we knew Griffiths had a great free-kick in him. All sorts of emotions", Strachan told reporters.

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