Strachan's assessment

Scotland 2-2 England

Scotland manager Gordon Strachan's media conference is coming up...

'I was celebrating before it hit the net'

Scotland 2-2 England

"I was away celebrating before the ball hit the back of the net [his second free-kick] as I knew that, if I got the ball round the wall, it was in.

"Then Harry Kane does what he does best by scoring right at the death and costing us three points.

"We've still got a great chance [of qualifying] as we've got four games left."

BBC Sport Scotland Facebook comments

Craig Hurry: Needed to win today even then it'd be unlikely. Shame about today though, but brutal defence and that used to be our stronger part of the team, for too many years now it's our weakest point.

Steven Gilmartin: That was the most Scotland thing I have seen Scotland do

Tale of the game...

Scotland 2-2 England

Statistics from Hampden

'A game we should win'

Scotland 2-2 England

England manager Gareth Southgate on ITV: "It's a game we should win but two moments of brilliant quality from Leigh Griffiths turned it on its head. We have to have a mentality that we are never beaten and we showed that at the end.

"The second free-kick is a slip, I'm not sure there is a lot we could have done. We controlled the game completely but if you don't get the second goal you run the risk of an equaliser.

"We have to be more clinical, that is fair. We got into good positions and didn't finish. The objective is to qualify and we still sit top of the group."

"We controlled the game completely"

'Like a middleweight boxer against a heavyweight'

Scotland 2-2 England

Scotland manager Gordon Strachan on ITV: "You cannot do any more than what they did; it was like a middleweight boxer against a heavyweight. I can't remember anyone hitting a better free-kick and then hitting an even better one.

"We had an opportunity to get up the pitch [before Kane's equaliser] but lost the ball. The noise, at one point, made it impossible to hear anything."

'It could be a big point for us'

Scotland 2-2 England

Scotland striker Leigh Griffiths on ITV: "It was a tough ask to get back into the game from 1-0 down but we showed what we are about, great resilience but you can't switch off.

"I practice the free-kicks every day in training. It's not often they come off, it's special. It could be a big point for us.

"On our day we can match anybody. We know how good this England side are. We have four games left and we could win all of them."

How will Scotland feel?

Scotland 2-2 England

Former Scotland winger Pat Nevin: "I am afraid it will be impossible to sum up how Scotland fans will be feeling now.

"Those were the highest of the highs for us when we went ahead and then the lows were twice as painful.

"I almost couldn't believe it but then I remembered - we are Scottish. This is what we do.

"I have to add here, Scotland fans were applauded by 99% of the England team and they applauded them back. Isn't that nice to see?"

Harry's Game

Scotland 2-2 England

England were leading with four minutes to go. Then, Leigh Griffiths decided to enter the party with not one but two sensational free-kicks to put Scotland in front in dramatic style.

How many times has Harry Kane popped up for club and country to score a crucial goal?

The striker's late equaliser rescues a point for Group F leaders.

"It is a special day," says Kane. "To be 2-1 down in stoppage time, to get that goal is special. I was trying to get a good contact on it and side-footed into the net.

"You have to expect the unexpected and we were 2-1 down from nowhere but we found another gear.

"It is a good point away from home. Scotland is no easy place to come."

What a finish to a pulsating World Cup qualifier.

England snatch a point

Scotland 2-2 England

Former England winger Chris Waddle: "It's a great finish but the keeper [Craig Gordon] has to come out for that. Harry Kane has not had a kick until that goal."

Kane and able

Scotland 2-2 England

Football can also be so, so cruel. With Scotland beginning to think about the mother of all parties to celebrate a first victory over England in 18 years, that man Harry Kane is at his predatory best as he knocks the ball home at the back post to break Scottish hearts at home and abroad.

GOAL England 2-2 Scotland (Kane)

Set-piece specialist

Scotland 2-1 England

Why do we love football? For moments like this. Scotland looked down and out, dead and buried. They equalised through a magnificent Leigh Griffiths free-kick.

And the Celtic striker has done it again! Showing some swagger, he picks the other top corner this time. Joe Hart is once again, helpless.

Hampden roars its approval even louder this time...

GOAL Scotland 2-1 England (Griffiths)

Griffiths steps up...

Scotland 1-1 England

Where did that come from? Gary Cahill cleans out Ryan Fraser on the edge of the area. Leigh Griffiths eyes up the free kick... and clips a wonderful effort over the England wall and into the top corner.

Joe Hart can't get anywhere near it; Hampden is aflame.

GOAL Scotland 1-1 England (Griffiths)

Scotland 0-1 England

Scotland carve out a chance for Leigh Griffiths just inside the England penalty area but the Celtic striker's attempted chip/lob drifts harmlessly wide as Joe Hart watches it sail out of play.

Dele Alli's work is done; he walks off to be replaced by Raheem Sterling.

Final Scotland change

Scotland 0-1 England

Chris Martin trots on to replace Ikechi Anya. Can Scotland find an equaliser in the final 10 minutes and keep alive their flickering hopes of qualifying for the 2018 World Cup?

Craig Gordon at fault?

Scotland 0-1 England

Former Scotland winger Pat Nevin: "The goalkeeper was lying down on the floor miles before he needed to.

"If he would have stayed up, he would have saved that."
