Last-gasp Kane strike denies 1-16 Scotland in dramatic draw

England manager Gareth Southgate embraces skipper Harry Kane
1 of 1

A remarkable World Cup qualifying clash between Scotland and England finished 2-2 as Harry Kane rescued the Three Lions with an injury-time equaliser at Hampden Park.

Scotland, who started out as 5-1 underdogs and drifted out to 350-1 in-play with just four minutes remaining as they trailed 1-0, looked on course for a dramatic victory following two sublime Leigh Griffiths free kicks.

Griffiths had never previously scored for Scotland but he looked to be the toast of the Tartan Army as Gordon Strachan's men were cut to 1-16 for a vital victory, however, they were unable to hold on with captain Kane levelling matters to break home hearts.

Few would have predicted the frantic ending after a goalless first 70 minutes before the derby exploded into life when substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain struck for the Three Lions, although Scotland goalkeeper Craig Gordon will have been bitterly disappointed not to have stopped the effort.

Gareth Southgate's side went as low as 1-25 in-play before Griffiths' free-kick double but Kane made sure England stayed unbeaten in qualifying. Coral are 1-3 that England don't lose on their way to Russia.

England are in control at the top of Group F but Scotland remain fourth and face an uphill battle to make the World Cup finals. The other early match in Group F finished with Slovenia beating Malta

There was also a massive late goal in Group C as Northern Ireland nicked a crucial 1-0 success away to Azerbaijan. Stuart Dallas notched at the death with Northern Ireland staying second in Group C.
