Captain Kane rescues England against Scotland

Scotland's striker Leigh Griffiths hits a freekick over the England wall to score their

"You can get moments in football, like today, where someone produces unbelievable quality and you find yourself level or behind in a game with the momentum against you and all of the crowd on a huge high".

The 23-year-old said: "It looked like we're going to win the game and all of a sudden, it looks like we're going to lose".

"It is fundamental to being a top team but it is only one step in that direction, we can still improve in all areas, we all know that, but nevertheless it is a significant moment I think", he said. That's what we have got to show - we have to be a team that are never beaten.

Strachan also hailed his team's character as fourth-placed Scotland missed the chance to inflict a first Hampden defeat on England since 1985 while dropping two Group F points.

"Because the difference of where the players play and the standard we were playing against, the gulf was probably the biggest gap I have seen for a wee while in big games which I have won".

Southgate reacted by sending on Oxlade-Chamberlain for Rashford in the 65th minute and five minutes later, the Arsenal man put England ahead. "It's annoying for them to do so much and nearly have a result that would have been one of the best ever".

"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".

Urged on by the Hampden Park faithful, Scotland started on the front foot, Griffiths sending a shot down Joe Hart's throat in the early stages.

"We can go in against what is deemed a very good team and match them in every department and almost beat them". And they keep coming back again.

Strachan added: "I saw Scotland's best ever free kick and then I see Scotland's second-best free kick, and then I have a noise that I have never heard anything like before. It's about getting the most out of the players you've got and he does that".

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