England Snatch A Point In Scotland

2018 World Cup Qualifier

Result: Scotland 2-2 England 

Date: 10 June 2017

Venue: Hampden Park

Harry Kane struck late in the second half to England a point, as they drew 2-2 with Scotland in a 2018 World Cup qualifier.

The reverse fixture saw the Three Lions coming out 3-0 victors which strengthened their lead at the top of Group F.

In typical derby fashion the match was a feisty one with both teams showing great intent and challenging for everything.

Tottenham Hotspurs forward Harry Kane was the biggest threat and came closest to opening the scoring but saw his attempt flashing wide of the post.

England were exposing the Scottish right hand side and it was from that side that a cross came in for Harry Kane but the forward missed the target again.

Despite pressure from England, Scotland held on and the game went into the break at 0 -0.

The Three Lions picked up where they left off in the first half and came close to scoring early on went Livermore’s strike hit the post.

It was substitute Alex Oxlaide-Chamberlain who broke the deadlock just after his introduction when his neat finish found the top corner to give England a much-deserved lead.

The goal struck a nerve on the Scots and they came out guns blazing in search of an equaliser.

They earned a free-kick which Griffiths skilfully converted to find the equaliser for his side. Hampden went into ruptures when Griffiths scored gain to give his side the lead in the dying minutes of the game.

Just when you thought the drama was done, Harry Kane broke Scotland hearts when found the equaliser after converting from a tight angle to ensure the English walk away with at least a point in a tightly contested game.
