Kane rescues draw for England against Scotland

"It's annoying for them to do so much and have a result that could have been one of the best results ever. We wanted to come here and win, but given the narrative of the game we have got to be pleased in the end to take a point".

"To do what they did was phenomenal". People can talk about their ability, but you cannot do any more than they did - the personality, character and drive.

"It was like watching a heavyweight boxer against a middleweight".

"The players have had a 10-day break so to get them back into the mentality of being at their best is always hard".

Strachan also applauded the contribution of Griffiths.

Scotland's Leigh Griffiths scores his first goal from a free kick at Hampden Park in Glasgow on Saturday.

"I have been involved with Scotland for 40 years now and I can not remember anyone hitting a better free-kick and then coming away and hitting an even better one".

Griffiths said: "It was a tough ask to get back into the game from 1-0 down but we showed what we are about, great resilience but you can't switch off".

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.

However, Kane slammed in at the far post deep into stoppage time to break the hearts of the Tartan Army.

The death toll in Knysna rose to five on Thursday, after a man died of a heart attack while being evacuated from his home. The weather also caused chaos throughout the city, knocking out electricity and cancelling flights and rail services.

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

"I was trying to get a good contact on it and side-footed into the net".

England trained with the Royal Marines in the build up to the match, and Kane praised the determination of the squad. We have a great point against a very good England side who no doubt will be going to the World Cup.

Griffiths felt Scotland had done themselves proud, despite not being able to hold on for what would have been a famous win.

And it seems his kind words prompted a positive reaction from the world of social media, with one fan writing: "Dignity, well said Wayne, back soon".

Tottenham Hotspur frontman Kane, who notched his sixth worldwide goal, was delighted that his first experience of the England captaincy ended on a high note.

"We proved that on our day we can match anybody". When they go back to England they'll think about the fact it's a hard match in terms of the calendar.

"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 knew if I got it round the wall it was in.

Of the second, he said: "I think Joe Hart should save it again. It's about getting the most out of the players you've got and he does that".
