Harry Kane's equaliser 'huge moment' for England - Gareth Southgate

Posted June 11, 2017

Before the game we would have taken the point but it was just the way it happened, but that's football for you. They play at a different level to most of us.

"We know how good this England side are, playing them at Wembley in November we didn't do ourselves justice, but today we showed what we are all about".

As always, Twitter had something to say about Hart's unusual choice of head-wear and well, we weren't disappointed.

The win leaves Strachan's side four points off second place with four games remaining.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had put England in front in the 70th minute.

Lithuania, who on Saturday lost 2-1 at home to Slovakia, will be Scotland's opponents on 1 September, three days before Strachan's side host bottom side Malta.

"Obviously we wanted to win the game, there is no doubt about that, but we got a point, are still top of the (qualifying) league".

"Then, most importantly for me, heading into injury-time 2-1 down, I don't see anyone sink to their knees, I don't see anyone hit the floor". It's special. It could be a big point for us.

"The players have had a 10-day break so to get them back into the mentality of being at their best is always hard".

And it seems his kind words prompted a positive reaction from the world of social media, with one fan writing: "Dignity, well said Wayne, back soon".

"The objective is to qualify and we're top of the group".

"Whatever anybody thinks about us as a group of players, one thing you can't question is their personality, character and commitment".

"It is annoying for them -- I can't be annoyed".

"I've also seen Scotland's best-ever free kick and then I've also seen Scotland's second-best-ever free kick".

"You try to protect yourself from the excitement but when we equalised I didn't, because that could have been my best result as a manger". "It's annoying for them to do so much and nearly have a result that would have been one of the best ever".
