Tottenham striker Harry Kane would love England captaincy

Harry Kane proud of 'special day' after rescuing England with stoppage time equaliser against Scotland

Scotland v England World Cup Qualifier Live Commentary

I've shared the leadership around and that has been important for us as a team.

"If we are as committed as we were today, we can get the three points".

England, however, refused to lie down as they registered what could be an important point in their quest to qualify for Russian Federation.

Southgate refused to blame his side for conceding the second late free-kick from which Scotland scored, and is happy group leaders England still have qualification for Russian Federation in their own hands - although Slovakia will close with two points by beating Lithuania, while Slovenia are three points back.

"It was a good ball in from them, it probably could have been defended better, I've not seen it again".

Harry Kane has spoken of his pride at captaining his country but insists England boast "plenty of leaders" in their ranks as Gareth Southgate contemplates who will wear the armband on a permanent basis. "It was like a middleweight fighting a heavyweight".

England looked to be crawling towards a just deserved albeit boring 1-0 win thanks to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's finish but two wonder strikes from Leigh Griffiths in the 87th and 90th minute put Scotland on the brink of their first win against the Three Lions since 1985.

"We could have had maybe a four versus two going up the field and we could have just killed the game off", said the Hull City defender.

"We've got to maintain the squad environment that people feel involved".

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

"It is annoying for them to do so much and have a result that could have been one of the best results ever". I didn't want to lose my first game as England captain, especially against Scotland.

"So these memories will be with me - I will look at the players and tell them you have to keep coming back and taking knocks like that". You need to give people game time; in the past one or two goalkeepers have given up global football because they haven't had the chance.

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

"We kept on going". If I go that route with anybody then I don't think that's the right thing to do.

The first proper chance came on 17 minutes when Kane - skippering England for the first time - beat the offside trap with lovely control inside Kieran Tierney, but blasted a left-footed half volley over the bar.
