Such lofty ambitions means all decisions have been made with the World Cup in Russian Federation in mind, even if Saturday's 2-2 draw at Scotland saw their lead at the top of Group F cut to just two points.

Two Leigh Griffiths free-kicks left England facing a first qualifying defeat since October 2009, only for Kane to volley in a 93rd-minute leveller from substitute Raheem Sterling's left-wing cross.

"I have said before I would love to be England captain", said Kane, who had previously been denied the chance to represent Southgate's team by injury and whose goal was his first for the national team in 13 months.

"Two special free kicks and all of a sudden we're in stoppage time 2-1 down but it was unbelievable character to get that second which still leaves us top and in a great position".

"I should be absolutely delighted with two goals and man of the match, walking in here with three points. I was trying to get a good contact on it and side-footed into the net", he told ITV.

Scotland suffered late heartbreak against England on Saturday evening as Harry Kane's late equaliser rescued a point for the Three Lions. "We had a couple of the Marines come up to the game and watch us, so it was great to see them again afterwards".

"But we played a team with five at the back, tried to frustrate which is understandable from their point of view". Amin Younes and Julian Brandt also scored their first global goals while Julian Draxler and Shkodran Mustafi shared the others as Germany maintained their 100 percent record after six games in European Group C. "It's not three points but it could be a massive point in the end", he said. You can't do any more than they did.

Celtic goalkeeper Craig Gordon was heavily criticised after Scotland's 2-2 draw with England.

Griffiths has already spent time in England, after being signed by Wolverhampton while the Black Country club was in the Premier League. "I think going 2-1 down in the manner that we did, a lot of heads could have dropped or people could have been sulking or so forth".

"It still leaves us top and in a good position because qualifying is all that matters".

"I don't think it was tougher than what we expected because we always expect to have tough games, especially against your rivals".

England trained with the Royal Marines in the build up to the match, and Kane praised the determination of the squad. These guys are giants and they are playing at a different level to most of us and they kept coming back, with their strength and power and speed it is hard to deal with.

"We look at opposition set plays before every game and we knew Griffiths had a great free-kick on him", added Kane.
