Kane silences Scotland's celebration with late leveller for England

Kane silences Scotland's celebration with late leveller for England

Strachan also hailed his team's character as fourth-placed Scotland missed the chance to inflict a first Hampden defeat on England since 1985 while dropping two Group F points. I think there is great potential, there is a desire on their part, they are showing pride in playing for the shirt but of course we have an enormous journey to go on to match teams who have already won World Cups and European Championships with players who are Champions League winners regularly and used to playing in the highest games.

Gordon Strachan, Scotland's manager, spoke of "Scotland's best ever free-kick, then their second ever best free-kick".

"But Harry Kane does what Harry Kane does best by scoring right at the death and costing us the three points". People can criticise me if they want but that's...

"You have to somehow find another gear and now it is not a bad point away from home".

"To score two goals that late in the game we just have to see the game out but it was a poor pass when it was three on one in the attack and they put the ball in the box for a great finish from Harry Kane".

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

The former Scotland and Manchester United midfielder said he was impressed with the physical presence of Gareth Southgate's young England side - and how his men coped with it.

"It was like watching a heavyweight boxer against a middleweight".

"We got ourselves into decent positions, but could not finish".

"There were a lot of positives to take".

Kane's goal was the Tottenham Hotspur striker's sixth in 18 worldwide appearances and came at the end of his first game under Southgate, after injuries had kept him out of England's six previous matches. Now we have more massive games but all winnable games and we will give it our all.

"We should have been further ahead - if you don't get the second goal, you run the risk of an equaliser at some point".

"Whatever anybody thinks about us as a group of players, one thing you can't question is their personality, character and commitment".
