Scotland boss proud of players after draw with England

Harry Kane proud of 'special' day after rescuing England against Scotland

England managed to salvage a 2-2 draw against Scotland with a last gasp Harry Kane equaliser, moments after Leigh Griffiths had scored two brilliant free-kicks in the space of two minutes.

After substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had given the Three Lions the lead at Hampden Park, Scotland appeared to be on the brink of securing what would have been a memorable victory following two superbly-struck free-kicks from Leigh Griffiths.

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. The home fans turned up the volume as Scotland pressed deep in the opposition half and Kyle Walker took his time with a throw-in as England regained their composure.

Scotland can still qualify for the World Cup finals in Russian Federation, despite the "bitter disappointment" of conceding a late equaliser to England, according to defender Christophe Berra.

Who impressed for England during their World Cup qualifying win over Scotland?

Southgate, trying to rebuild England's confidence after last year's Euro 2016 humiliation by Iceland, said his players' perseverance in the face of improbable odds was a sign that they are on the right path. But one lapse of concentration has cost us in the end and instead of getting three points we got one.

England traveled to Glasgow without Nathaniel Clyne who was forced to pull out through injury, whereas Tottenham star Harry Kane earned the honour to wear the captain's armband in Wayne Rooney's absence.

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

Trump administration order threatens quality apprenticeships for NC workers
Earlier this year, Trump accepted a challenge to create 5 million new apprenticeships, according to the news outlet. Trump also took a tour of the school that included a stop at a classroom filled with tool and die machines.

The draw means England's cushion at the top of Group F has been narrowed to two points, but there remains confidence within the group that it is a matter of when rather than if they qualify for the World Cup.

"We'll make some changes but I can't say how many until we've assessed everybody". One pass, one header goes somewhere else and we win the game.

"But we are identifying those areas and we'll keep working on it".

They visitors were close to taking the lead after 27 minutes when Craig Gordon headed the ball clear and Harry Kane lobbed him but Kieran Tierney was on the line to save Scotland's blushes.

"We should never gotten into that position with the amount of quality in our side". "All sorts of emotions", Strachan told reporters.

"I don't think there's anything Joe Hart could have done about them and you just have to give credit where it is due. At some point it's probably something we should do, in fact I'm certain it's something we should do, but I think it's been good to devolve the leadership".

'Obviously I don't know what the gaffer's feeling is on it.
