Kane reflects on 'special' goal after England rescue job

Harry Kane's injury-time equaliser spared England's embarrassment after Scotland threatened to secure a dramatic victory in their World Cup qualifier at Hampden Park.

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.

Kane's goal deep into added time earned a point for England after a pair of Leigh Griffiths free-kicks had turned the game on its head in favour of Scotland.

"There were two brilliantly executed free-kicks but we came here to get three points and maybe we lacked creativity from the whole team". You score a goal and then - I don't know high the percentage would be - the other team score in the next couple of minutes.

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. In the marines, they are life and death situations and we took as much as we could from the game and stood up to be counted. We've had lots of discussions as a team about what we can do better. "Joe Hart was never going to play both games", said former England global Danny Mills on the BBC. "There was a real quality finish as well, under pressure, to get the point", he said.

"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".

But last season he was dropped by club manager Pep Guardiola, who sent him out on loan to Italian side Torino and last week signed his replacement at Man City: Brazilian keeper Ederson has joined for what British media reported was 35 million pounds ($44.59 million), a world record fee for a goalkeeper.

"Harry Kane will captain the side tomorrow".

The visitors, already beaten 8-0 at home by the Germans earlier in the group, remained without a point.

"We've obviously gone into this game without Jack (Wilshere), (Jordan) Henderson, (Danny) Drinkwater, (Fabian) Delph", Southgate said.

'I know what I want to do and this team has great ambition. Suddenly it looked like a bad day at the office for us.

"I don't think it was tougher than what we expected because we always expect to have tough games, especially against your rivals".

England's position at the top of Group F weakened as Slovakia and Slovenia both won, but it left Hampden Park relieved to have kept its eight-year unbeaten run in tournament qualifying matches intact.

"We come away fairly happy with it and in a good position to qualify for the World Cup". He told me just before training on Friday.
