Harry Kane Wants Permanent England Captaincy

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.

It looked as though the Three Lions were on course for a routine three points when substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain was the beneficiary of poor goalkeeping from Craig Gordon with 20 minutes remaining. The former Coventry, Southampton and Celtic boss watched his side battle back from a goal down to go 2-1 up through a two magical free-kicks from Leigh Griffiths, only for England to level in added time to his dismay.

The remarkable finish leaves England still comfortably in charge of the group but Scotland still with a lot of work to do if they want to spend next summer in Russian Federation.

"We knew it was going to be tough away from home, worldwide qualifier, Scotland are doing everything to stay in the World Cup".

Kane, who was handed the captain's armband for the first time, said: "I would say that is probably the most special moment for me".

"So these memories will be with me -- I will look at the players and tell them you have to keep coming back and taking knocks like that", he said. We were in control at 1-0 up and then all of a sudden 2-1 down and it looks as if you are going away losers.

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

Berra, who has joined Hearts from Ipswich Town, admits that the equaliser was preventable but reflected on the quality of Tottenham Hotspur striker Kane, who captained England.

The England boss also felt it was an important moment individually for Kane, whose sixth global goal came just over a year after he netted his fifth, in a friendly against Turkey.

"We got ourselves into decent positions and didn't quite finish but the objective's to qualify and we still sit top of the group". Scotland's aggressive outset put them on top of the game but they struggled to make any chances of note before the contest settled down midway through the first half and surprise starter Jake Livermore began to see more of the ball. You score a goal and then - I don't know high the percentage would be - the other team score in the next couple of minutes.

"I felt we controlled the game for large parts and opened the scoring".

England were certainly strong in the way that they recovered, however the Three Lions will be disappointed with the result considering that they would have expected to win.

"Today we've done that".

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

"I've a feeling we might have been sitting here talking about how long it was since he last scored for England if he hadn't scored".

History has shown some players just can't recreate their exploits for their club on the global stage, but Kane is unlikely to fall into that bracket and his late strike to save the day may be a significant sign post and see him appointed captain on a permanent basis.
