Before the game we would have taken the point but it was just the way it happened, but that's football for you.

"We have four games left and four very winnable games and as long as we take the performances from the last two games we will give ourselves a great chance".

But he added: "The challenge is now how to become the best side in the world and we are already doing a lot of work to do well if we get to the finals".

England hardly sparkled against an industrious and spirited Scotland side in the Group F qualifier but Southgate believes they showed they have the right personality to get results in testing environments.

Southgate, who reserved judgement on Joe Hart's attempts to save the free-kicks, said: "We deserved to be ahead and then there was a mad minute and a half".

In a tiresome game at Hampden Park, Gareth Southgate's side looked set to claim three points following Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain's 70th-minute strike.

"Obviously we wanted to win the game, there is no doubt about that, but we got a point, are still top of the (qualifying) league".

"The objective is to qualify and we're top of the group". Harry Kane scored three minutes into stoppage time to deny Scotland, and Strachan, a memorable victory.

"And then a noise after that, that I have never heard anything like before". It's special. It could be a big point for us.

"But you cant switch off against this England side, because they will punish you and that is what they did in the end". I will look at the players and tell them you have to keep coming back and taking knocks like that.

"It's all to play for and don't rule us out". He's a great character, you know.

"I can't be annoyed", Strachan said.

"I was looking to do the exact same with the second free-kick. It's annoying for them to do so much and nearly have a result that would have been one of the best ever".

"You try to protect yourself from the excitement but when we equalised I didn't, because that could have been my best result as a manger".
