Kane's goal deep into added time earned a point for England after a pair of Leigh Griffiths free-kicks had turned the game on its head in favour of Scotland.

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.

But an unremarkable World Cup qualifier ended extraordinarily as Leigh Griffiths levelled with a wonderful late free-kick, before repeating the trick to put Gordon Strachan's side on the brink of a famous victory.

But, with the clock winding down, Kane - captain in the absence of the omitted Wayne Rooney - met Raheem Sterling's cross to clinch a point at Hampden Park.

"It was fantastic", said Kane of the team's character, which was praised by Three Lions chief Gareth Southgate.

"But everyone stood up to it".

Robertson said: "If you look at the fixtures we have got, we are capable of beating them all if we can perform like that (against England)". We have got leaders in the team, and it is just that I am wearing the armband.

"It (the goal) is definitely up at the top, it was a special day", Kane said. To score that goal, it was a special feeling for me'.

England, who have not lost a qualifying match since October 2009, will now turn their attention to Tuesday's friendly against France in Paris.

"Overall the objective is to qualify and we are top of the group".

"It was a insane end to the game and that's worldwide football for you". We had moments where we got into really good positions in the final third and you have got to take the finish.

"I think we had three down with cramp as well".

Former Scotland worldwide Steve Nicol laments England's last-gasp equaliser as "unprofessional" defending by Scotland. In the marines, they are life and death situations and we took as much as we could from the game and stood up to be counted.

Scotland hero Griffiths was left "gutted" despite scoring a brace of free-kicks for his first goals in the dark blue.

Scotland turned the game on its head though, as Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths scored two free kicks from an nearly identical position within three minutes of each other.

"It was a good ball in from them, it probably could have been defended better, I've not seen it again".

"We've got players who use the ball well - Clucas at Hull, for example". And I wanted to talk about it because I'm interested.

Kane, who has now scored six times in his 18 appearances for England, relished his first experience of Hampden and left
satisfied with the point which keeps his country at the top of Group F
and firmly on course to secure the automatic qualification place for next year's World Cup finals in Russian Federation.

Graeme Souness believes the missed opportunity to beat the "Auld Enemy" will "haunt Scottish people for decades". We have to be a team that are never beaten, maybe the clock runs out but you never, ever stop and today we have done that. Seriously, for decades that will haunt us.

Scotland's Scott Brown was booked inside three minutes for a late challenge on Dele Alli, followed up with a Livermore cruncher that typified the stunted early exchanges.
