Harry Kane Wants Permanent England Captaincy

Harry Kane Wants Permanent England Captaincy

"I want to save it, of course, but the wall want to block it but we didn't so we got on with it and we scored the next goal which was the important thing in the time that we had".

"Today we've done that".

England still have work to do to secure World Cup qualification, but preparations for Russian Federation are well under way as Gareth Southgate attempts to prevent their all-too-frequent major tournament struggles.

A draw means Gareth Southgate's men have left the chasing pack an opportunity to gain ground, with Slovenia three points back in second, while Slovakia will close within two by beating Lithuania. They stuck their chests out, held their heads up, walked back to the centre circle and said "Let's get something from this".

In Glasgow, Kane marked his first match as captain with an equaliser three minutes into injury time in a match between old enemies that burst into life in the dying moments.

"It was like a middleweight boxer fighting a heavyweight, they kept getting hit".

Kane, who was handed the captain's armband for the first time, said: "I would say that is probably the most special moment for me". He said he sees me as one of the leaders in the team, that was it.

Two late free-kicks from Griffiths (87, 90) looked to have earned the home side a sensational victory in Saturday's World Cup qualifier, after substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had opened the scoring 20 minutes from time.

"We are disappointed but we have got to be proud of ourselves".

Montenegro started fast as Fatos Beciraj gave it the lead after just two minutes, before Jovetic took matters into his own hands.

"I have been involved with Scotland for 40 years now and I can not remember anyone hitting a better free-kick and then coming away and hitting an even better one".

"Not only did we discuss how we wanted to play but we discussed how we needed to be if events turned against us".

"I'm really pleased with the level of training and we'll have to transfer that into the game", said Southgate, as per the BBC.

Just when you thought the drama was done, Harry Kane broke Scotland hearts when found the equaliser after converting from a tight angle to ensure the English walk away with at least a point in a tightly contested game. There was a great atmosphere and the way the game panned out, it was a good point. "We've gave it away cheap and then it's went out wide". When you are on the pitch, not much changes.

"Obviously we wanted to win the game, there is no doubt about that, but we got a point, are still top of the (qualifying) league".
