Last-gasp Kane earns England dramatic draw

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 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 they don't lose en route to Russia.

England stay in control at the top of Group F but Scotland remain fourth and face an uphill battle to make the World Cup in Russia. The other early match in Group F finished with Slovenia beating Malta
2-0.

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 remaining second in Group C.

Home Win Draw Away Win
Key stats
  • United have conceded in just one of five league games
Expert verdict
Holders Manchester United have started the season in excellent form and the title-chasing Red Devils should have little trouble overcoming poor-travelling Burton in the third round of the League Cup at Old Trafford. Jose Mourinho fielded a strong team throughout last term’s competition, which saw his side oust Northampton, rivals Manchester City, West Ham, Hull and Southampton on their way to silverware. Burton have won just two of their last 12 league away games.
