Captain Kane rescues England against Scotland

20 June 2017

Harry Kane struck in stoppage time to rescue a 2-2 draw for England after late drama in their World Cup qualifier in Scotland.

England were facing a shock Hampden defeat when Leigh Griffiths produced two moments of free-kick magic to put Scotland 2-1 ahead in the final minute.

England were certainly strong in the way that they recovered, however the Three Lions will be disappointed with the result considering that they would have expected to win.

England striker Harry Kane has described his side's 2-2 draw with Scotland on Saturday as "a point gained" after they kept their unbeaten qualifying record alive with a late equaliser.

"We should never gotten into that position with the amount of quality in our side".

"But to be 2-1 down in stoppage time and get something from the game is a good feeling".

LeBron James was attended to on the court during Game 3 of the NBA Finals after a scary collision with teammate Tristan Thompson . No NBA team has ever recovered from the 3-0 deficit in which the Cavaliers find themselves in the 2017 Finals.

"So to then go again as a team and for no-one to drop their heads, it was a proud moment".

"So these memories will be with me - I will look at the players and tell them you have to keep coming back and taking knocks like that".

"I think it's a huge moment for the team", said Southgate, who took his squad to a military training camp on a team-building exercise last week.

Livermore hit the post five minutes into the half after his shot took a heavy deflection off Robertson and Scotland, with James McArthur on for the injured James Morrison, survived some nervous seconds before the ball was finally safe. Dier's free-kick was well saved, but the ball was recycled and substitute Sterling's brilliant cross from the left was side-footed home on the volley by Kane, with Gordon left flat-footed.

It took him just over two minutes to get booked for a completely unnecessary challenge on Dele Alli, setting the tone for a rough afternoon fixture.

Kane's goal was his sixth in 18 global appearances and came at the end of his first game under Southgate, after injuries had kept him out of England's six previous matches.

And the Spurs star said he would have been heartbroken to have thrown all of the points away on his first day leading the side.

"There were two brilliantly executed free-kicks but we came here to get three points and maybe we lacked creativity from the whole team".

England, who were not impressive overall, remain top of Group F on 14 points while Scotland are in fourth spot on eight points. "The manner in which it comes about is obviously not how we would have liked, but if it was the other way around and we had scored at the death, it would have been a good point".

"You have short-term objectives in winning individual games but in the background a lot of the work we're doing is to start to prepare us for the finals".

"On our day we can match anybody".
