Harry Kane: 'I want to be England captain full time'

Griffiths dragged Scotland back from 1-0 down after 85 minutes, after substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had put the Three Lions ahead, but Kane stole in at the death to put the cap on an incredible final quarter.

"That was the one, at 60 years old, that could have been the best result of my footballing career", Strachan said on ITV1.

" I think in the past one or two goalkeepers have sort of given up global football because they've not had that chance, so I'm conscious of keeping people involved". They were like a heavyweight boxer and we were middleweight, which we expected. "Scotland is no easy place to come".

The turnaround sent shockwaves throughout England's fanbase as they faced their first World Cup qualification group defeat. When you are on the pitch, not much changes.

Southgate was particularly pleased that his players had shown exactly the kind of approach he had demanded from them during their team talks in the week's build-up.

England remains top of the table with 14 points, but Slovakia won 2-1 in Lithuania to close within two points while Slovenia is just one point further back after a 2-0 win over Malta. "It's not three points but it could be a massive point in the end", he said.

"It is fundamental to being a top team but it is only one step in that direction, we can still improve in all areas, we all know that, but nevertheless it is a significant moment I think", he said.

"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".

The home fans turned up the volume as Scotland pressed deep in the opposition half and Kyle Walker took his time with a throw-in as England regained their composure. "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's a game we should win, a game we were in total control of", the England boss told ITV.

Just when you thought the drama was done, Harry Kane broke Scotland hearts when found the equaliser after converting from a tight angle to ensure the English walk away with at least a point in a tightly contested game. "People have said that there is a lack of leaders in this team but I don't think that is the case", added Southgate.

"We look at opposition set plays before every game and we knew Griffiths had a great free-kick on him", added Kane.
