Harry Kane described the ending to his first game as England captain as “sweet” as he netted the goal which ensured that Scotland did not pull of an upset win over the Three Lions at Hampden Park on Saturday.
Alex-Oxlade Chamberlain opened the scoring for Gareth Southgate’s England team before a brace from Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths appeared to put the Scottish on course for a shock victory. However Kane managed to net an equalizer during stoppage time, much to the disappointment of the home fans.
“[The goal] is definitely up at the top, it was a special day,” Kane said on ITV. “It looked like we were going to win the game and then like we were going to lose when 2-1 down in stoppage time.
“To get the goal was special. I was just thinking to get good contact on it, I did not know whether the keeper was going to come, so when I saw him stay on his line… what a ball it in was, and it was just a good side foot into the net.”
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.
