Scotland striker Leigh Griffiths 'gutted' after England's last-gasp leveller

England captain Harry Kane relished an "incredible" atmosphere at Hampden Park as his side snatched a late point with a 2-2 draw against Scotland.

Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain opened the scoring for Gareth Southgate's England team before a brace from Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths appeared to put the Scottish on course for a shock victory.

"To be 2-1 down in stoppage time and get that goal is special".

The Three Lions took the lead in the 70th minute when Oxlade-Chamberlain, who had only been on the pitch for two minutes, scampered into the right side of the area and fired a shot through the legs of Stuart Armstrong which Gordon saw at the last second and failed to prevent it going past him.

Gareth Southgate is looking to name a new skipper now that Wayne Rooney's worldwide career is seemingly winding down, and Kane staked his claim by rescuing a point for the Three Lions with a stoppage-time equaliser at Hampden Park on Saturday. The questions around this centre on character, on the ability to withstand events that go against you.

"We come away fairly happy with it and in a good position to qualify for the World Cup".

He also said that there may be an answer "by the end of this week" as to whether Trump has recordings of his conversations with fired FBI Director James Comey.

"Obviously we wanted to win the game, there is no doubt about that, but we got a point, are still top of the (qualifying) league".

Griffiths, 26, had never previously scored for Scotland and his goals drew rich praise from manager Gordon Strachan after a result that kept Scotland in fourth place in the pool.

"When I first came into the England squad, Wazza was great with me", said Kane.

A sparky opening had filtered out throughout the first 45 minutes apart from Kane's chances.

England beat Italy 3-1 in the semi-finals in South Korea on Thursday and will face Venezuela in Sunday's final with a chance to claim the first world title for any age-group England team since the full men's side triumphed in 1966.

"I'm really pleased with the level of training and we'll have to transfer that into the game", said Southgate, as per the BBC.

A second free kick from the opposite side of the goal in the 89th minute looked to have completed an incredible turnaround for the home side - but they didn't reckon for Harry Kane, who raced in at the far post to turn the ball home after a brilliant raking ball from Raheem Sterling on the left.

"The first free-kick is careless, the second is a slip so I'm not sure there's a lot we could have done about that", he added.

"It's hard to sit here and say it's a good point given the manner in which the game went in the last minutes, but we'll take the point against England". "There was a real quality finish as well, under pressure, to get the point", he said.

"We're disappointed, but we've got to be proud of ourselves as well". That timely intervention, just moments after two free-kicks by Leigh Griffiths had taken Scotland to the verge of a first win in this fixture in 17 years, maintained England's unbeaten qualifying campaign at the top of Group F.

"The challenge is how do we become the best team in the world?"
