England draw was one of the 'most emotional games ever' for Strachan

England draw was one of the 'most emotional games ever' for Strachan

"And that's what was so good about Griff, to put the work he put in, and then to have a free-kick when you are exhausted at the end of the game and be able to execute it, was phenomenal". One pass, one header goes somewhere else and we win the game.

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.

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

Gordon Strachan's side are six points behind Group F leaders England with four fixtures remaining. Harry Kane scored three minutes into stoppage time to deny Scotland, and Strachan, a memorable victory. It could be a big point for us.

England struggled to break down their hosts during the disappointing game until the 70th minute, when sub Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain found the back of the net after a good solo run.

"If we are as committed as we were today, we can get the three points".

Scotland then finish the qualification campaign at home to Slovakia and away to Slovenia.

"The players have had a 10-day break so to get them back into the mentality of being at their best is always hard". "It's annoying for them to do so much and have a result that could have been one of the best results ever".

"I definitely didn't want to lose in my first game as skipper so to get that goal; it's a good day for us and obviously a very proud day for me as well".

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

Southgate, who reserved judgement on Joe Hart's attempts to save the free-kicks, said: "We deserved to be ahead and then there was a mad minute and a half".

"The first free-kick is careless, the second free-kick is a slip, so I'm not sure there's a lot we could have done about that".

"The objective is to qualify and we're top of the group. It's about getting the most out of the players you've got and he does that".
