England World Cup 2018 Russia first round qualifiers update

Arsenal striker Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain opened the scoring for England. Just in time, England Captain Harry Kane volleyed in an injury-time equalizer to tie the score against the Scots 2-2 after Scotland striker Leigh Griffiths came through with two superlative free kicks that looked like legend-making magic to Scottish fans as the strikes went to the right and left of England super goalie No.1, Joe Hart.  Scotland were ever so close to their first win over the auld enemy since 1999 - their first at Hampden since 1985. Gordon Strachan’s Scotland side almost tasted victory against their arch-rivals England, but instead, two precious World Cup points went up in smoke. England’s long unbeaten record in World Cup qualification matches continues! Buy all World Cup 2018 Russia tickets for England from LiveFootballTickets.com!

England Captain Harry Kane volleys in an injury-time equalizer to tie score against Scotland 2-2

Tottenham Hotspur star striker Harry Kane will remain captain after leading his England side as they drew 2-2 with Scotland in a fight to the finish on Saturday. In his past four appearances for club and country combined, Harry Kane has scored nine goals.

Thirty-one-year-old Heaton will make his debut start for England in a career that has seen him play in all four divisions in England. Heaton did not feature on the first team at Manchester United and has since played for Swindon, Antwerp, Cardiff, QPR, Rochdale, Wycombe and Bristol City as well as the Clarets.

Heaton will be winning his third cap for England with both of his previous appearances coming off the bench.

"Obviously I have played across all four divisions, the ambition never left me, that hunger to play for England," Heaton said. "It might have felt, for other people, a long way off at certain times, playing down in League Two, but I never lost that belief."

Manchester City goalkeeper Hart played the full 90 minutes at Hampden Park, giving up two late free kicks from Scotland’s Leigh Griffiths.

After the match, Southgate was asked if Hart was at fault for the goals.

"They were great free-kicks. Beyond that, coaching conversations I have with players stay private,” said Southgate. "If we go down that route then it's not the right thing to do. I go back to the concession of free-kicks being the starting point. There are many areas we could have done better."

Thirty-year-old Joe Hart has won 71 caps for England. However, Hart faces fierce competition from Butland, Heaton, and Southampton's Fraser Forster to keep his No.1 shirt.

"You need to give players the opportunity," said Southgate. "In the past, one or two keepers have given up international football because they've not had that chance, so I'm conscious of keeping players involved."

Butland returned to active play in late April after being sidelined with a fractured ankle while on England duty in March 2016.

"We think he can also challenge for the number one spot,” said Southgate. "It is a difficult call on Fraser, who is also a very good keeper. With those four and [Sunderland's] Jordan Pickford, plus a couple of lads coming up potentially from the Championship next year, we are very healthy."

England’s clash with France on Tuesday will be the first senior England fixture with a video assistant referee. The use of VARs is being trialed by world governing body Fifa and may feature in next year's World Cup. Italian Davide Massa will referee the match, with two conventional assistant referees.

The Oasis song Don't Look Back in Anger will be played before the game as the French pay their respects to those killed in the recent attacks in London and Manchester. Fans will hold up red and white placards to form the England flag as the song is played just before the players emerge from the tunnel. Both teams will wear black armbands and a minute's silence will also be observed prior to the match.

England have won only one of their past six away games against France (D1 L4) - a 1-0 win under Glenn Hoddle in June 1997. However, they did win their last meeting with Les Bleus, in a friendly at Wembley in November 2015 (2-0).

France will be without suspended centre-back Philippe Mexes following his second tournament booking, Laurent Koscielny will take his place. Yohan Cabaye is set to start after overcoming the thigh injury that saw him miss out against Sweden.

Samir Nasri and Franck Ribery are both expected to start in the Euro 2012 quarter-finals on Saturday. The two midfielders did not take part in Wednesday's training session due to minor injuries.

"They are doing very well," said France assistant coach Alain Boghossian. "They missed training [on Wednesday] to look after some little niggles."

Spain have never won against France in a major tournament (one World Cup and three European Championship encounters).
