Kane rescues draw for England against Scotland in qualifying

However, Hampden Park erupted in the 87th minute when Leigh Griffiths curled home a 25-yard free-kick for his first worldwide goal, before lightning struck twice in the final minute of normal time as another set-piece from the Celtic star put Scotland on the brink of a famous Group F victory.

But a boisterous Hampden Park was silenced deep into injury time as Harry Kane met Raheem Sterling's cross to snatch a 2-2 draw for England.

GERMANY ran up an expected goal avalanche in thrashing San Marino 7-0 as Harry Kane celebrated his first start as England captain with a late equalizer to deny Scotland on Saturday.

Stating "I'd love to be England captain", Kane went on to admit that "we've got leaders in the team" and "it is just the case that I'm wearing the armband".

Gareth Southgate's men are now three points clear of Slovenia at the top of the group with four matches to play. "It has been a long season, but there is one more to go before we get a little break". In the 87th minute, Griffiths lined up a free-kick and brilliantly dispatched a strike past Joe Hart - his first goal in 14 attempts.

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.

'Obviously I don't know what the gaffer's feeling is on it.

Southgate's side upped their level: Kane forced a smart save from Gordon with a snap header from Ryan Bertrand's cross... and then came the opener.

"But I don't want to talk about being low".

"We still have a great chance". That goalkeeping situation, we need to give players an opportunity, game time.

Defender Christophe Berra revealed how manager Strachan was feeling after the match.

"I think it is a huge moment for the team".

"It is not going to allow us to recuperate any points. They were heavyweight boxers, we were middleweight".

As always, Twitter had something to say about Hart's unusual choice of head-wear and well, we weren't disappointed.

"There were a lot of positives to take". You need to give people game time; in the past one or two goalkeepers have given up worldwide football because they haven't had the chance.

"I felt we controlled the game for large parts and opened the scoring".

Kane took his first steps at global level under Rooney's leadership, having broken into the Spurs first team with Hugo Lloris - France's first-choice captain - wearing the armband.

"Not only did we discuss how we wanted to play but we discussed how we needed to be if events turned against us".
