Kane rescues draw for England against Scotland in qualifying

However, Strachan said he was "too exhausted to think about where we are, I just want to go home".

"We were able to observe an elite group working at a high level, and the standards they set for themselves all the time".

The win leaves Strachan's side four points off second place with four games remaining.

England remains top of the table with 14 points, but Slovakia won 2-1 in Lithuania to close within two points while Slovenia is just one point further back after a 2-0 win over Malta.

The Reds midfielder has starred for both club and country over the previous year, translating his sparkling form for Liverpool to dominant performances for England and vice versa.

The 23-year-old's rise is among several fairytale stories that have lit up English football of late, going from a peripheral role at Spurs to a fans' favourite and one of Europe's most risky forwards.

"To do what they did was phenomenal. I think it's a significant goal for many different reasons".

"It was like watching a heavyweight boxer against a middleweight".

England were left in no doubt as to what kind of afternoon awaited them before kick-off when "God Save the Queen", the English national anthem, was drowned out by a volley of Scottish boos.

Scotland's Leigh Griffiths celebrates scoring their second goal.

Scotland's deep-lying 5-4-1 system starved England's creative players of space, but gradually cracks began to appear. Livermore did not venture forward too often but he did have one first-half shot that troubled Gordon and five minutes after the interval he had another go.

But Scotland posed a threat on the break, Andrew Robertson spurning a sight of goal by slicing over from Griffiths's cut-back and Stuart Armstrong curling off-target.

After gathering a throw-in on the right, Oxlade-Chamberlain twirled around Brown, edged across the box and let fly with a left-foot shot that flew through Gordon's feeble attempt at a save.

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.

It was Griffiths's first Scotland goal and the first England had conceded in the campaign. Celtic striker Griffiths, who played the lone striker's role for most of the game, scored two late free-kicks to bring Scotland back from the dead and send Hampden Park wild with delight.
