Tottenham striker Harry Kane would love England captaincy

Harry Kane celebrates scoring England's equaliser in stoppage time

Harry Kane is keen to become the permanent England captain after wearing the armband for the first time in the dramatic 2-2 World Cup qualifying draw with Scotland at the weekend.

After substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain had given the Three Lions the lead at Hampden Park, Scotland appeared to be on the brink of securing what would have been a memorable victory following two superbly-struck free-kicks from Leigh Griffiths.

England were trailing 2-1 at Hampden Park as two late free-kicks from Leigh Griffiths had put them on course for a shock defeat, the first in 35 qualifying matches.

However, Kane slammed in at the far post deep into stoppage time to break the hearts of the Tartan Army.

That midfield will look different the next time England take the field in a World Cup qualifier, if only because Dier picked up a yellow card midway through the second half which will see him suspended for the game against Malta in September.

"When we went away with the Marines, we spoke about being ready for any situation", said Kane.

"So these memories will be with me - I will look at the players and tell them you have to keep coming back and taking knocks like that". Now we have more massive games but all winnable games and we will give it our all.

Kane was handed the armband by Three Lions coach Gareth Southgate in the absence of Wayne Rooney, whose global career appears to be winding down.

Harry Kane's stint as captain of England is not yet finished.

"When I first came into the England squad, Wazza [Rooney] was great with me".

The draw leaves England three points clear at the top of Group F and still on course to reach the finals in Russian Federation next year, while Scotland sit in fourth spot three points behind second-placed Slovenia.

"We have to be a team that are never beaten".

"It's hard to sit here and say it's a good point given the manner in which the game went in the last minutes, but we'll take the point against England".

The biggest chance for the visitors came one minute shy of the half-hour mark when Gordon came out of to head the ball clear, but only to Kane', who attempted lob got cleared off the goal line. As a player you just get on with it but as a manager that was hard work. We have a great point against a very good England side who, no doubt, will be going to the World Cup.

And Southgate was disappointed England only emerged with a point in a game he felt they controlled.

Manager Gareth Southgate has revealed it is now his intention to appoint a permanent skipper with Wayne Rooney's global career as good as over and Kane said: 'I would love to be England captain.

Southgate added: "I have a feeling I might have been sitting here talking about how long it was since he last scored for England if he hadn't scored it". I was just trying to do my best for the team.

"It is about standing up and being counted and we did that today".
