Kane reflects on 'special' goal after England rescue job

Kane reflects on 'special' goal after England rescue job

It was just phenomenal.

Harry Kane is keen to become the permanent England captain after wearing the armband for the first time in the dramatic 2-2 World Cup qualifying draw with Scotland at the weekend. "Sometimes in worldwide football, surprises happen and that was nearly the case at Hampden".

But Kane popped up deep into stoppage time to preserve a two point cushion for England in the standings.

Kane ruthlessly finished Raheem Sterling's superb cross to deny Scotland a historic win but said being told he was captain was the most special moment.

"To be 2-1 down in stoppage time and get that goal is special".

"We just tried to take as much as we could from what they told us into our game and I think we stood up and were counted".

"We managed to stay calm", 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.

"It is a good point away from home".

However, their lead at the top of Group F was cut to two points as Slovakia won 2-1 in Lithuania.

Southgate said: "People have said to me there were a lack of leaders in the team and I don't see that to be the case".

Griffiths felt Scotland had done themselves proud, despite not being able to hold on for what would have been a famous win.

There had been little warning of what was to come during a largely uninspiring encounter that only started to warm up once English substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had given the visitors a 1-0 lead on 70 minutes.

"But you cant switch off against this England side, because they will punish you and that is what they did in the end".

"We knew it was going to be tough away from home in an worldwide qualifier and with Scotland doing everything to stay in the World Cup". "As a top player, playing for your country, you want to play in the best stadiums".

"We proved that on our day we can match anybody".

"That is the challenge for us", Southgate said when asked about improving performances on the major stages.

"We've got to have a mentality that we're never beaten and we showed that at the end". These guys are giants, they play at a different level to most of us, and they kept coming back.

"It was fantastic", said Kane of the team's character, which was praised by Three Lions chief Gareth Southgate. Is it what we wanted when we turned up here?

Kane's goal was the Tottenham Hotspur striker's sixth in 18 worldwide appearances and came at the end of his first game under Southgate, after injuries had kept him out of England's six previous matches. Now we have more massive games but all winnable games and we will give it our all. "If you look at the fixtures we've got, we're capable of winning them all if we can perform like that".
