Gareth Southgate hails Kane's equaliser as 'huge moment' for England

Gareth Southgate hails Kane's equaliser as 'huge moment' for England

"It was probably the tallest wall you could put up in European football today and he went round the side, over the top, he is a good character, a wonderful character, odd but wonderful", he said of the Celtic forward. These guys are giants and they are playing at a different level to most of us and they kept coming back, with their strength and power and speed it is hard to deal with.

Asked what the national team boss said in the dressing room, Berra said: " He just said that if we had won it would maybe have been the greatest moment of his career. That's what we have got to show - we have to be a team that are never beaten.

Gordon Strachan's side are six points behind Group F leaders England with four fixtures remaining.

Urged on by the Hampden Park faithful, Scotland started on the front foot, Griffiths sending a shot down Joe Hart's throat in the early stages.

Lithuania, who on Saturday lost 2-1 at home to Slovakia, will be Scotland's opponents on 1 September, three days before Strachan's side host bottom side Malta.

Southgate reacted by sending on Oxlade-Chamberlain for Rashford in the 65th minute and five minutes later, the Arsenal man put England ahead.

"Obviously we wanted to win the game, there is no doubt about that, but we got a point, are still top of the (qualifying) league".

The iMac Pro, which will be available in a sleek and sexy space grey color, has presently only been shown off to the audience. Now, Apple thinks consumers who'll purchase the said desktop all-in-one computer will require enormous power.

"And then a noise after that, that I have never heard anything like before".

"[It was] a game we should win, a game we were in total control of", said Southgate.

And it seems his kind words prompted a positive reaction from the world of social media, with one fan writing: "Dignity, well said Wayne, back soon".

"However the objective is to qualify and we still sit top of the group".

"But we played a team with five at the back, tried to frustrate which is understandable from their point of view". He's a great character, you know, a wonderful character.

"The first free-kick was careless, the second (given away) was a slip, so I am not sure there is a lot we could have done about that". We had moments where we got into really good positions in the final third and you have got to take the finish. "It's annoying for them to do so much and have a result that could have been one of the best results ever".
