Harry Kane cherishes 'special' England equaliser against Scotland

Harry Kane's injury-time goal gave England a 2-2 draw in a insane finish to their World Cup qualifier against hosts Scotland on Saturday in Glasgow.

It kept an unimpressive England on course for next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation and dealt a savage blow to Scotland's already dwindling chances.

The 23-year-old was the fifth man to skipper the Three Lions in Southgate's seven matches and rose to the occasion, firing home a late leveller after two stunning Leigh Griffiths free-kicks put Scotland on the brink of a famous win.

England captain Harry Kane was proud of the way England dug deep to avoid a chastening defeat to Scotland.

In other actions Saturday, Group C leader Germany pummeled San Marino 7-0 in Nuremberg, and Group E leader Poland topped Romania 3-1 in Warsaw.

Kane, who has led the Premier League's scoring charts for the last two seasons, had mixed emotions at fulltime.

"It (the goal) is definitely up at the top, it was a special day", Kane said on ITV1.

But with only a minute left of injury time captain Harry Kane saved England's unbeaten qualifying record with a cool finish as the game eneded 2-2. That's what we've got to show. I was trying to get a good contact on it and side-footed into the net.

Having already trounced San Marino 8-0 in the reverse fixture, Germany's nearly second string line-up quickly set about running up another rugby score in Nuremberg.

In terms of club football, the European qualifiers will start for some clubs before this month is out, and we need to hope that they do well and progress.

"I was looking to do the exact same with the second free-kick".

The man himself didn't shy away from facing his critics though, and he fronted up after the match to not only defend himself, but to exalt the skill and technique of the man who should still be considered a hero for Scotland despite his teammates' inability to hold on to the precious lead he had given them for four excruciatingly long minutes. Brown's challenge on Dele Alli for the first booking of the game - a reducer, to use the old-fashioned parlance - came inside the opening three minutes.

Alexander Soderlund's second-half penalty cancelled out Theodor Gebre Selassie's strike for the visitors.

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

Julian Brandt added the sixth with a diving header on 72 minutes before Wagner wrapped up his hat trick with five minutes to play. I just love working with them.

England, who were not impressive overall, remain top of Group F on 14 points while Scotland are in fourth spot on eight points.
