Sharing power, Southgate gives Kane captaincy against Scots

Posted June 13, 2017

The 30-year-old was criticised for standing leaden-footed in the England goal as two free kicks from Scotland's Leigh Griffiths sailed either side of him into the net in the dramatic end to Saturday's World Cup qualifier at Hampden Park.

England took the lead in the 70th minute when substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's left-foot strike beat goalkeeper Craig Gordon's flimsy attempt at a save.

"It is fundamental to being a top team but it is only one step in that direction, we can still improve in all areas, we all know that, but nevertheless it is a significant moment I think", he said.

Despite the disappointment of missing out on a first win over England since 1999, Griffiths said Scotland would draw strength from their performance. "It was probably the tallest wall you could put up in European football today and he went round the side, over the top, he is a good character, a wonderful character, odd but wonderful", he said of the Celtic forward. We have questioned character and they've shown character today.

But last season he was dropped by club manager Pep Guardiola, who sent him out on loan to Italian side Torino and last week signed his replacement at Man City: Brazilian keeper Ederson has joined for what British media reported was 35 million pounds ($44.59 million), a world record fee for a goalkeeper.

"The manner in which we lost it right at the end, that's Harry Kane".

Scotland next travel to Lithuania and then host Malta and Slovakia, who are four points ahead of Strachan's side in second, before facing Slovenia away from home in their final group game. I knew we were going to be under the cosh for a lot of the game because England are a great team. We had a couple of marines come here from the weekend to watch.

England manager Gareth Southgate said his team's last-gasp 2-2 draw against Scotland demonstrated the kind of mental fortitude he is trying to instil in his players.

The result kept England top of qualifying Group F, while Scotland remain fourth.

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

"On our day we can match any-body".

"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. I don't think he did much all game.

"He is in between me and Charlie (Mulgrew) and it is a good height that maybe Craigy could have come out but all three of us have maybe got to look at ourselves, that we could have done a bit better, we were all a bit uncertain".
