England manager Gareth Southgate said he believed his side could fight back after falling behind and preserve their unbeaten status in Group F.

Harry Kane says the insane end to England's 2-2 draw with Scotland showed the team's spirit after his late equaliser rescued a point in injury time.

"I don't think anybody realises, when they watch the telly, how big and strong and quick these guys are".

"I think [Kane's goal] was an important moment for the team, important moment individually for Harry. There is great potential, a desire on their part and a desperation to do well for the shirt but of course we've got an enormous journey to go to match teams that have won World Cups and European Championships with players who perform in the Champions League regularly".

"At 1-0 down against England, it is always going to be a tough ask to get back into the game, but we showed resilience and what we are all about by getting ourselves back into it and then into the lead", he said on ITV1. We have to be a team that, maybe the clock runs out, but you never, ever stop. That's what happened to us today.

"Is it what we wanted when we turned up here? No, it isn't. But the chain of events is remarkable really".

England goalkeeper Joe Hart, whose Manchester City future remains in limbo following a loan spell at Torino, got nowhere near either shot, by Southgate absolved him of blame.

"Our objective is to qualify and we're still top of the group".

"I'm sure he'll be disappointed to concede any goal".

Poland stayed six points clear as Lewandowski got on the scoresheet for an 11th consecutive qualifying match. "Scotland is no easy place to come", added the 23-year-old striker who captained his country for the first time.

Strachan added: "I saw Scotland's best ever free kick and then I see Scotland's second-best free kick, and then I have a noise that I have never heard anything like before". So these memories will be with me.

"To do what they did, people can talk about ability and this and that, but you cannot do more than they did". I can't be annoyed.

"That was the one, at 60 years old that could have been the best result of my footballing career", he told ITV.
