Scotland were denied a famous victory over their “Auld Enemy” at Hampden Park in Glasgow, during an exciting match in their World Cup Qualifier.
England had taken the lead through substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain’s, 70th minute close range strike, and looked set to give England the three points.
However two stunning free-kicks from Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths, within three minutes of each other put Scotland ahead, with only four minutes of injury time remaining.
The atmosphere at Hampden was electric as Scots believed they had clinched victory in the last minute of the game.
As Scotland fans celebrated, Harry Kane beat the offside trap, latching on to Sterling’s cross, to shoot home from close range.
The goal earned England a point that keeps them on course to qualify for Russia 2018. The goal means Scotland’s hopes of making the finals are almost over.
England, despite selecting players from the alleged “best league in the world” have failed to impress during their World Cup campaign and had Scotland handled the four minute’s of injury time better, they could have found themselves with a true test of their character in the run up for qualification.
England keeper Joe Hart was heavily criticised for his positioning for both the Griffiths’ free-kicks. The striker was faced with a huge wall for both strikes but picked his spot perfectly, scoring his first and second international goal.
England fans however were far from impressed and made their feelings known on social media.
The game was marred by hooligans causing chaos in Glasgow city centre before and after the match.
