Harry Kane to retain England captaincy for France friendly

Vera Richards | 13 June, 2017, 08:11

After substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had given the Three Lions the lead at Hampden Park, Scotland appeared to be on the brink of securing what would have been a memorable victory following two superbly-struck free-kicks from Leigh Griffiths.

Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney is happy for Harry Kane for taking the England captaincy.

"It was probably the most special moment of my career, personally", said Kane.

"But if we can up that performance by 10 or 20 per cent then I believe we have got the better of them and hopefully we can get beat the other two teams that we have already got points from The boys are disappointed because we know what it could have been".

"I think we had moments where we got into really good positions in the final third and you've got to take the finish".

SCOTLAND manager Gordon Strachan said he was proud of his players after they were just seconds away from a historic win over the "old enemy" England in a World Cup qualifier at Hampden Park.

"They've got to try and win now while we've got to concentrate on us and try to win the next couple of games to qualify".

"It was important to us to keep that unbeaten record going", admitted Kane.

"I thought the boys put a great effort in, especially as some hadn't played for a long time and you could see we were getting a wee bit exhausted towards the end". It's special. It could be a big point for us. "We have four games left and we could win all of them".

"But you cant switch off against this England side, because they will punish you and that is what they did in the end".

"Harry Kane will captain the side tomorrow".

"When I first came into the England squad, Wazza [Rooney] was great with me".

Scotland had started the game aggressively, roared on by a capacity 52,000 crowd but England gradually took control and ended the first half looking increasingly unsafe. "People have said that there is a lack of leaders in this team but I don't think that is the case", added Southgate.

"I practise the free-kicks every day in training", said the Celtic striker, who had never previously scored for his country. "It got us back into contention and if we can perform like we did in that match, then we will certainly cause England a few problems".

Southgate was particularly pleased that his players had shown exactly the kind of approach he had demanded from them during their team talks in the week's build-up.

A draw leaves England top of Group F, with Slovenia three points back and Slovakia able to cut the gap to two with victory over Lithuania.

"I felt we controlled the game for large parts and opened the scoring".

He said: "We have a lot of competition in the more advanced positions in midfield but we've not got great cover in deeper positions in that department".
