England draw was one of the "most emotional games ever" for Strachan


England trained with the Royal Marines in the build up to the match, and Kane praised the determination of the squad.

"We managed to find, somehow, another goal, another gear, and it's not a bad point away from home now".

Taking to Twitter to show his support for the Three Lions team, Rooney wrote: "Good luck to the lads against Scotland today. Scotland is no easy place to come".

Griffiths felt Scotland had done themselves proud, despite not being able to hold on for what would have been a famous win.

"We kept on going".

"But you cant switch off against this England side, because they will punish you and that is what they did in the end".

"But Harry Kane does what Harry Kane does best by scoring right at the death and costing us the three points".

England looked to be headed for a hard-fought win, when Lee Griffith's netted not one, but two cracking free-kicks on 87 and 90 minutes.

Led Coalition Colluding With Daesh In Syria: Russia
Iraqi forces backed by the coalition are also battling IS in Mosul, where the jihadists are now confined to a few neighbourhoods . The number of reported civilian casualties in the coalition s strikes has swelled as the SDF offensive has intensified.

"We proved that on our day we can match anybody". We know how good this England side are.

"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". When they go back to England they'll think about the fact it's a hard match in terms of the calendar.

"I've also seen Scotland's best-ever free kick and then I've also seen Scotland's second-best-ever free kick".

Southgate, who reserved judgement on Joe Hart's attempts to save the free-kicks, said: "We deserved to be ahead and then there was a mad minute and a half".

"You try to protect yourself from the excitement but when we equalised I didn't, because that could have been my best result as a manger".

"But we played a team with five at the back, tried to frustrate which is understandable from their point of view".

But he added: "The challenge is now how to become the best side in the world and we are already doing a lot of work to do well if we get to the finals".

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