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

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

After the game, McArthur tweeted his reaction to the game, saying he was "absolutely devastated" not to win the game, as can be seen below.

"It was like watching a heavyweight boxer against a middleweight".

"It was a huge moment for the team", said Southgate of Kane's first global goal in more than a year.

"I think it was an important moment for the team, important moment individually for Harry", Southgate said.

The late strike was a bitter blow to Scotland's already dwindling World Cup qualifying hopes, as the result leaves them fourth in Group F, four points behind second-placed Slovakia.

"I have been involved with Scotland for 40 years now and I can not remember anyone hitting a better free-kick and then coming away and hitting an even better one".

Two late free-kicks from Griffiths (87, 90) looked to have earned the home side a sensational victory in Saturday's World Cup qualifier, after substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had opened the scoring 20 minutes from time.

"To put the work that he put in and then have a free-kick, when you're exhausted at the end of the game, and be able to execute it is phenomenal".




'To come from 2-1 down with the atmosphere the way it was so late in the game was a positive because we've worked very hard this week on team spirit and togetherness.

Just when the "Auld Enemy" thought that Scotland have sealed three points, Kane, who was given the captaincy by manager Gareth Southgate, rescued his side with a close-range finish from Raheem Sterling's cross. We've come into a very hard atmosphere, a hard environment.

"It's a day personally I'll never forget and a great stadium to do it in".

Griffiths felt Scotland had done themselves proud, despite not being able to hold on for what would have been a famous win. It could be a big point for us. I knew if I got it round the wall it was in.

"The first free-kick was careless, the second (given away) was a slip, so I am not sure there is a lot we could have done about that".

Midfielder Amin Younes claimed his first goal for Germany before the break, and there were more cheers after it when Shkodran Mustafi scored two minutes into the second half. "We have a young team emerging, there was a 19-year-old and a 21-year-old in the front line today who haven't played in many occasions like this". The clock may run out but you never stop.

"However the objective is to qualify and we still sit top of the group".
