Captain Kane rescues World Cup point for England

Captain Kane rescues World Cup point for England

Leigh Griffiths struck two late free-kicks to give the hosts a 2-1 lead heading into stoppage time - but Harry Kane equalised in the 93rd minute.

On a sun-kissed Glasgow afternoon, England took the lead in the 70th minute when substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's left-foot strike beat home goalkeeper Craig Gordon's flimsy attempt at a save.

Southgate refused to blame his side for conceding the second late free-kick from which Scotland scored, and is happy group leaders England still have qualification for Russian Federation in their own hands - although Slovakia will close with two points by beating Lithuania, while Slovenia are three points back. But there was still time for Kane to get in on the act, arriving at the far post deep into stoppage time to equalise.

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.

Home skipper Scott Brown had set the tone for an unforgettable World Cup qualifier inside three minutes as he introduced himself to Dele Alli with a late challenge which earned a yellow card, and Scotland continued their aggressive start by forcing four early corners. "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".

"It (the goal) is definitely up at the top, it was a special day", Kane said on ITV1. I will look at the players and tell them you have to keep coming back and taking knocks like that. There was a great atmosphere and the way the game panned out, it was a good point.

In addition, Comey has said Sessions did not respond when he complained that he did not want to be left alone with Trump again. The Newsmax head also slammed the White House communications team's response to his statement, calling it "amateur hour".

Kane's strike, his sixth in 18 England games, was a sucker-punch for Scotland manager Gordon Strachan, whose side remain in fourth place, three points off a possible play-off berth.

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

"Our objective is to qualify and we're still top of the group". "We haven't managed to win, but given the narrative of the game, we've got to be pleased to take the point".

England manager Gareth Southgate praised the Three Lions' never-say-die attitude as they rescued a point from the jaws of defeat against Scotland on Saturday.

"You try to protect yourself from the excitement but when we equalised I didn't, because that could have been my best result as a manger". "If you look at the fixtures we've got, we're capable of winning them all if we can perform like that". "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".

"It's hard to sit here and say it's a good point given the manner in which the game went in the last minutes, but we'll take the point against England". I knew if I got it round the wall it was in.
