England captain Harry Kane scored an injury time equaliser to deny Scotland a famous Hampden win as their their World Cup Group F qualifying clash ended 2-2.
England had looked on course for victory when with 20-minutes left, substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain put the visitors ahead – but then with five-minutes left, the game erupted.
The equaliser came with four-minutes left as Griffiths stepped up to curl the ball over the wall and to the left of Joe Hart – who could not reach it. Amazingly his first goal for Scotland, but he did not have to wait long for his second.
Less than three-minutes later – Hampden was sent into raptures – as Griffiths did it again, this time putting it to the other side of Hart after again beating the wall from 25-yards.
England looked on their way to their first qualifying defeat of any type since 2009 and Scotland were looking at a first win over their ‘Auld Enemny’ since 1985.
But Gordon Strachan’s side were denied thanks to a customary brilliant finish from Kane. Rahem Sterling curled the ball into the Scottish box, and the home defenders were left ball watching as the Tottenham star side-footed a volley past Gordon.
The Three Lions remain clear at the top of the group, whilst the point keeps Scotland in touch with Slovakia and Slovenia in second and third.
What a man!! @dallas_stuart

In Group C – Northern Ireland maintained their brilliant run and it was again a dramatic affair as they claimed a last-minute winner in Azerbaijan.
The winner came from Leeds’ wide-man Stuart Dallas – who claimed his first goal for his country in injury time.
