A late equaliser from Harry Kane rescued a point for England at Hampden Park on Saturday, after a mediocre clash came to life in the closing minutes.

England struggled to break down their hosts during the disappointing game until the 70th minute, when sub Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain found the back of the net after a good solo run.

However, Scotland ‘keeper Craig Gordon really should’ve done better, palming the shot straight into the back of his own net.

England looked to be headed for a hard-fought win, when Lee Griffith’s netted not one, but two cracking free-kicks on 87 and 90 minutes.

Gordon Strachan’s men were now in touching distance of a massive win before captain Harry Kane netted deep into injury-time from a Raheem Sterling centre.

The dramatic but barely deserved draw sees Gareth Southgate’s charges stay on course for next summer’s World Cup.

As for Scotland, they now find themselves in fourth place in Group F, six points behind leaders England and in serious danger of missing out on a major finals once again.
