Scotland v England video, highlights: Harry Kane strikes in 93rd minute to save Three Lions

HARRY Kane marked his first game as captain with a stoppage-time equaliser as England denied Scotland a famous victory in Saturday’s 2-2 World Cup qualifying draw in Glasgow.

England were heading for a first qualifying defeat since October 2009 after Leigh Griffiths struck two glorious late free-kicks to wipe out substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s 70th-minute opener.

But in a breathless denouement, Tottenham Hotspur striker Kane dispatched a deep cross at the back post to preserve England’s unbeaten record in Group F and deny Scotland a first win over their oldest rivals since 1999.

“The end for me is a significant moment because the character of the team has to come through in these moments,” said England manager Gareth Southgate, whose side face France in a friendly in Paris on Tuesday.
