Harry Kane to retain England captaincy for France friendly

England captain Harry Kane describes his side's 2-2 draw with Scotland as a point gained having scored a 93rd-minute equaliser at Hampden Park.

Kane wasn't heavily involved in the game overall, but, in his first match captaining the national team, the 23-year-old managed to have a decisive impact.

"It (the goal) is definitely up at the top, it was a special day", Kane said on ITV1.

England vs Scotland went from a bang average game of football to absolute madness In the space of eight minutes.

"If we've got a team in a world final at that age group, why are we looking around the world?", he said. "I was trying to get a good contact on it and side-footed into the net", he told ITV.

And Southgate was disappointed England only emerged with a point in a game he felt they controlled.

England team: Hart, Walker, Cahill, Smalling, Bertrand, Dier, Livermore, Lallana, Alli, Rashford, Kane. We can only take steps at a time and work as a team to improve every area - whether that's technical, tactical, psychological. That goalkeeping situation, we need to give players an opportunity, game time.

The former Scotland and Manchester United midfielder said he was impressed with the physical presence of Gareth Southgate's young England side - and how his men coped with it.

"Slovakia away (0-3) and Lithuania at home (1-1) were disappointing performances, we are not hiding away from that".

"Whatever anybody thinks about us as a group of players, one thing you can't question is their personality, character and commitment".

Hart has been criticised following England's 2-2 draw with Scotland on Saturday, when he was beaten twice in quick succession by a couple of late free-kicks from Leigh Griffiths.

England, who were not impressive overall, remain top of Group F on 14 points while Scotland are in fourth spot on eight points.

"We don't beat England very much", said the Scotland great.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's goalscoring impact off the bench in Glasgow gives him a chance of a start, while Ben Gibson and Kieran Trippier will be hoping to make their senior debuts.

The wall didn't jump for first free-kick that flew in before they jumped for the second one - but the ball went in between Eric Dier's and Chris Smalling's heads.

"But one lapse of concentration has cost us in the end and instead of getting three points we got one".

"We knew it was going to be tough away from home in an global qualifier and with Scotland doing everything to stay in the World Cup".

Kane's goal was his sixth in 18 global appearances and came at the end of his first game under Southgate, after injuries had kept him out of England's six previous matches.

"We got ourselves into decent positions, but could not finish".
