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.

Scotland v England - FIFA 2018 World Cup Qualifier

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."

Scotland v England - FIFA 2018 World Cup Qualifier

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).

PREMIER LEAGUE TOP GOAL SCORERS: HARRY KANE

Premier League 2016 - 2017 Top Goal Scorers: Harry Kane

This season Harry Kane, Tottenham Hotspur; Romelu Lukaku, Everton; Alexis Sanchez, Arsenal; Diego Costa, Chelsea; Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Manchester United; Jermain Defoe, Sunderland; Dele Ali, Tottenham Hotspur; Kun Aguero, Manchester City; Sadio Mane, Liverpool; and Eden Hazard, Chelsea are the top 10 goal scorers to date in the England Premier League. Tottenham’s top goal scorer this season to date is Englishman Harry Kane. After Matchweek 27’s Round of EPL fixtures, Chelsea is in first place on the 2016-17 England Premier League Table. Tottenham Hotspur is in second, Manchester City is in third, Liverpool is in fourth, Arsenal is in fifth, Manchester United in in sixth, and Everton is in seventh.

Tottenham 3-2 Everton

Spurs goals: Harry Kane 20, Harry Kane 56, Dele Alli 90 +1:46

Everton goals: Romelu Lukaku 81, Enner Valencia 90 +2:56

An Everton team that arrived at White Hart Lane unbeaten in nine Premier League games, with five clean sheets in the last seven, left in defeat with Harry Kane being a key in their loss. Harry Kane’s opening goal at 20 minutes paved the way for one the Spurs best spells of the season. The second half started just as well as Harry finished clinically for 2-0. With 10 minutes left, Romelu Lukaku pulled a goal back. Dele Alli made it safe at 3-1 on 92 minutes before Enner Valencia pulled another goal back seconds later, but Spurs had another massive three points in the bag.

Tottenham Hotspur superstar striker Harry Kane outplayed Everton’s Lukaku to lay claim to being the current Premier League's sharpest striker, scoring a brace in the Spur’s 3-2 victory against Everton on Sunday. Deli Ali scored the late winner for Tottenham. Kane claimed top spot on the EPL goal scoring charts, while manager Mauricio Pochetino’s Tottenham Hotspur side fortified their hold on second place in the standings and put pressure on leaders Chelseea with a ninth successive  league win at home, moving to within seven points of league leaders The Blues. Despite missing 10 games of the campaign due to injury, Kane has amassed 24 goals in all competitions in the 2016-17 season — only four goals behind his haul last season with more than two months remaining to add to his goal tally. Kane had already sent Tottenham into a two-goal lead, including a spectacular long-range dipping strike, when Romelu Lukaku finally managed his first attempt on target in the 81th minute. Enner Valencia scored Everton’s second goal.

Referee: Michael Oliver

Soon White Hart Lane will be rebuilt, and the Spurs are treating fans to great memories of their last matches as Tottenham delivered their ninth straight Premier League victory at the old stadium that has been their home since 1899. The Spurs plan is to vacate White Hart Lane for the entire next season before they return to a rebuilt 61,000-seat stadium in 2018-19.

Mauricio Pochettino’s players are on a massive roll that it feels as though visiting teams are forced to play against Pochettino’s 3-4-2-1 system. Romelu Lukaku’s late goal threatened an Everton revival but Dele Alli’s stoppage-time goal turned the tide. Pochettino’s was obviously thrilled with Tottenham’s result that keeps them on the heels of the league leaders, Chelsea.

Kane began the game with three hat-tricks since the start of the year. He was denied in two attempts by the goalkeeper Joel Robles, with the second on 82 minutes a great opportunity. However Kane managed to defeat Robles in his next attempts and scored twice. The 23-year-old is now the outright top scorer in the league this season, with 19 goals, one more than Lukaku, and he has 24 in all competitions.

Tottenham policed Lukaku diligently, with Toby Alderweireld and Jan Vertonghen keeping the prolific striker to only one goal.However Lukaku managed to race through to send a low shot past Hugo Lloris giving the Spurs a scare. Then Alli’s goal put the result beyond doubt. Valencia had the last word, when he converted from Séamus Coleman’s free-kick. But Italian Pochettino’s team had done already done enough to earn three points.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino was pleased with the win and three points added to their tally. The Italian also commented on Hugo Lloris’s 200th appearance for the Spurs. Lloris has been one of the best keepers in the EPL this season, conceding a league-best 17 goals, with 23 clean sheets. The French international is a key reason why the Spurs have the best defensive record in the league and are undefeated this season at White Hart Lane.

“We played with a lot of confidence, always knowing what we needed to do in every moment and that was fantastic,” said Spurs boss Mauricio Pochettino. “The team showed big confidence and that’s important for us because now we’re at the most important period with the Premier League and FA Cup and we have that consistency and that belief. Overall, it was a very good win, a fantastic performance. Okay, in the end we’re a little disappointed to concede the last goal. The first can happen, the second when the game was over after Dele scored, I’m a little disappointed because we showed a lack of concentration and that can’t happen again, but without that, we played very well. We played a fantastic first half and the second half we dominated and played with good quality and a high tempo. I’m very pleased for everyone and we have to keep going.”


“Everton was a very difficult opponent, we knew that,” continued Pochettino. “We played much, much better and if you see the score, 3-2, maybe that’s not fair because that makes it look like a very competitive game but we deserved more. Sometimes that happens. The most important thing for us was to get the three points, important to keep our position in the table fighting for the highest position and to be there if Chelsea fail.”


“It’s amazing for him and I congratulate him. Hugo is a great professional, a great goalkeeper and it’s fantastic for him," added Pochettino about Spurs captain and No. 1 goalie Hugo Lloris.
