Harry Kane has pointed to England's experience with the Royal Marines last week in explaining how the side "stayed calm" to claim a dramatic stoppage-time equaliser despite conceding two late free-kicks in Saturday's 2-2 draw with Scotland at Hampden Park.

The Three Lions had seemingly snatched defeat from the jaws of victory in Group F of World Cup qualifying, as two brilliant late Leigh Griffiths free-kicks cancelled out Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's opener. Griffiths scored his first-ever goal for Scotland today from a lovely free kick and immediately scored another one in three minutes' time for a stunning late show at Hampden Park.

The England captain netted less than 90 seconds before the end of four minutes of stoppage time to the end of a memorable World Cup qualifier.

It kept an unimpressive England on course for next summer's World Cup in Russian Federation and dealt a savage blow to Scotland's already dwindling chances, BBC reports.

"It is a good point away from home". Before the game we would have taken the point but it was just the way it happened, but that's football for you.

"It was great for me personally to lead the team out, a very, very proud moment and to get that goal at the end made it even more special", said the striker. We had a couple of marines come here from the weekend to watch.

The Tottenham striker, who has topped the Premier League scoring charts for the past two seasons, is hopeful he will be selected as the new main man for England.

England trained with the Royal Marines in the build up to the match, and Kane praised the determination of the squad.

The case has already helped demolish his image as America's Dad, cultivated during his eight-year run as kindly Dr. He also tried to sow doubt about Constand's story, saying it had evolved during her interviews with police.

"I thought he was extremely composed with the ball at his feet and his focus through the week, he's been one of the outstanding leaders in the group", said Southgate, whose side remain top of UEFA qualifying Group F.

"We'll make some changes but I can't say how many until we've assessed everybody".

"We can only take steps at a time and work as a team to improve every area - whether that's technical, tactical, psychological. We think he can challenge for the number one spot going forward". "You get hit and they keep coming back and back, creating chances".

England were certainly strong in the way that they recovered, however the Three Lions will be disappointed with the result considering that they would have expected to win. We've had lots of discussions as a team about what we can do better.

"I felt we controlled the game for large parts and eventually opened the scoring with about 20 minutes left".

"If we've got a team in a world final at that age group, why are we looking around the world?", he said. "It is about standing up and being counted and we did that today", he told reporters.

Southgate added: "I have a feeling I might have been sitting here talking about how long it was since he last scored for England if he hadn't scored it".
