Scotland striker Leigh Griffiths 'gutted' after England's last-gasp leveller

2018 World Cup Qualifier Tottenham Hotspur striker Harry Kane to captain England against Scotland

Graeme Souness calls on the Scottish Football Association to hand Gordon Strachan a new deal as he remains the best candidate to continue leading the national side. "We have four games left and we could win all of them". "People have said that there is a lack of leaders in this team but I don't think that is the case", added Southgate.

"We've got to have a mentality that we're never beaten and we showed that at the end".

Thoughts on Joe Hart's performance against Scotland on Saturday afternoon?

Griffiths, 26, had never previously scored for Scotland and his goals drew rich praise from manager Gordon Strachan after a result that kept Scotland in fourth place in the pool.

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.

"We did that and it was a real quality finish under pressure to get the point". 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.


"The players have had a 10-day break so to get them back into the mentality of being at their best is always hard". And they keep coming back again.

"However the objective is to qualify and we still sit top of the group".

"It's all to play for and don't rule us out". He's a great character, you know, a wonderful character.

"I can't be annoyed", Strachan said.

"I've also seen Scotland's best-ever free kick and then I've also seen Scotland's second-best-ever free kick". We had moments where we got into really good positions in the final third and you have got to take the finish. "It is annoying for them to do so much and have a result that could have been one of the best results ever".
