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

If things do take a turn for the worse, always be ready for that. But we
managed to stay calm.

"The questions around us centre on character and the ability to withstand events that go against you".

"I don't think Scotland are far off", he said.

Southgate told Sky Sports: To come back from 2-1 down with the whole stadium bouncing and the memories that might have brought for the team, they put that to one side and they came through it. So to be given that opportunity by the gaffer and how the game panned out, to manage to score in the last minute was a very proud moment. "A good captain leads by example, on and off the pitch", the Spurs forward said.

"Personally, I picked up a lot about leadership from the time we spent with the Marines".

"A big part of it is about being in hard situations", Kane said of the boot camp. In the Marines, of course, they have life and death situations. "We did that and it was a real quality finish under pressure to get the point".

Southgate was particularly pleased that his players had shown exactly the kind of approach he had demanded from them during their team talks in the week's build-up.

Harry Kane struck for England in injury time after Leigh Griffiths had scored two wonderful free kicks in the final three minutes of normal time.

"The atmosphere in the changing-room would have been a party if we'd won", he said. "The manner in which it comes about is obviously not how we would have liked, but if it was the other way around and we had scored at the death, it would have been a good point".

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.

"We proved that on our day we can match anybody".

England's players will finally be able to go on holiday after a friendly with France in Paris on Tuesday, with their next games coming in a World Cup Qualifier double-header against Malta and Slovakia in the first week of September.

At this point, the three points looked relatively safe for England; Scotland had barely threatened, and Southgate's side would have been confident they could see the game out.

"We can only take steps at a time and work as a team to improve every area - whether that's technical, tactical, psychological".

"Sometimes in global football surprises happen and that was the case". I am not someone who gets too irate or too low. 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.

"But you cant switch off against this England side, because they will punish you and that is what they did in the end". "To be fair to him, he's stuck two
fantastic free-kicks at the death".
