Southgate calls for more clinical England after late Scotland drama

Gareth Southgate heartened by England's resolve after thrilling World Cup qualifier finale

England looked to be crawling towards a just deserved albeit boring 1-0 win thanks to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's finish but two wonder strikes from Leigh Griffiths in the 87th and 90th minute put Scotland on the brink of their first win against the Three Lions since 1985.

England were seconds away from seeing their 34-game unbeaten run in global qualifiers come to an end and a first defeat at Hampden Park since 1985 after Leigh Griffiths scored two late free-kick goals.

But with a famous victory on the cards, England skipper Harry Kane levelled in stoppage time to deflate the Tartan Army and the Celtic forward. We had moments where we got into really good positions in the final third and you have got to take the finish.

"We knew it was going to be tough and credit to them for standing there and getting the two goals, but it was nice to not lose the game". 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.

But, with the clock winding down, Kane - captain in the absence of the omitted Wayne Rooney - met Raheem Sterling's cross to clinch a point at Hampden Park.

"When I first came into the England squad, Wazza [Rooney] was great with me".

England remain top of Group F in the qualifying campaign, while Scotland stay fourth in the group.

"We should have been further ahead - if you don't get the second goal, you run the risk of an equaliser at some point".

"We can only take steps at a time and work as a team to improve every area - whether that's technical, tactical, psychological".

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. "It's not three points but it could be a massive point in the end", he said.

System likely to develop, prompts warnings for Gulf Coast
A Tropical Storm Warning has already been issued for part of the Louisana coast for this Potential Tropical Cyclone Three. No tropical systems this weekend in Savannah, just hot temperatures and low rain chances.

"It's hard to sit here and say it's a good point given the manner in which the game went in the last minutes, but we'll take the point against England".

England manager Gareth Southgate insists England's injury-time equaliser against Scotland is a "big moment" for the team, as they finally proved they have character.

They visitors were close to taking the lead after 27 minutes when Craig Gordon headed the ball clear and Harry Kane lobbed him but Kieran Tierney was on the line to save Scotland's blushes.

'Obviously I don't know what the gaffer's feeling is on it. I think there is great potential, there is a desire on their part, they are showing pride in playing for the shirt but of course we have an enormous journey to go on to match teams who have already won World Cups and European Championships with players who are Champions League winners regularly and used to playing in the highest games.

"If we are as committed as we were today, we can get the three points".

Fans line up early for Warriors celebration
But at the end of the day we know what's best for us as a group and we want to do everything we can to keep this team together. Needless to say, McCaw had some big moments that helped keep the Warriors out in front of the Cavaliers .
