England Snatch A Point In Scotland

England were on course for victory after substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain took advantage of some weak defending and goalkeeping in the 70th minute after Craig Gordon had needlessly conceded a throw-in.

"I was pleased I didn't see people lying on the floor, they were back at it". It was like watching a heavyweight boxer against a middleweight.

Scotland appeared to have secured a first victory over its fierce rival since 1999, but the Premier League leading scorer for the last two seasons came to his country's rescue.

"Our objective is to qualify and we're still top of the group".

Scotland can still qualify for the World Cup finals in Russian Federation, despite the "bitter disappointment" of conceding a late equaliser to England, according to defender Christophe Berra.

They also had good things to say about Finals MVP Kevin Durant , and eventually had respect for Green for 'doing his job'. It was very surprising, because like I said , he was the one who opened the door for that.

The remarkable match means England remain top of Group F on 14 points from six matches, while Scotland lie fourth with eight points. "I said on Saturday it was never my intention to play Joe in this game", insisted the 46-year-old.

England looked more risky on the rare occasions they got their opponents turning and Kane had another half chance, with Craig Gordon stranded after coming out of box to head away a long ball.

"It is annoying for them to do so much and have a result that could have been one of the best results ever". Scotland got two goals from nowhere but we still managed to get a point. Even as I was doing well with my club he was giving me a little phone call or text to say "things could change for you as you play more and get bigger". The Tartan Army booed God Save The Queen and England fans chanted against home manager Gordon Strachan but were silenced by Leigh Griffiths' double, although Harry Kane's late leveller had the smiles back. "We knew it was going to be tough and credit to them for standing there and getting the two goals, but it was nice to obviously not lose the game". We have questioned character and they've shown character today. "We have four games left and we could win all of them".

"When we went 2-1 down, a few lads could have been on their knees or had their heads in their hands".

"I have said before I would love to be England captain", said Kane, who had previously been denied the chance to represent Southgate's team by injury and whose goal was his first for the national team in 13 months. Before the game we would have taken the point but it was just the way it happened, but that's football for you.
