Ryan Bertrand played the duration as England drew 2-2 with Scotland in Group F of World Cup qualifying at Hampden Park.

Bertrand was one of two Saints representatives in Glasgow alongside Fraser Forster, who watched on among the substitutes.

He turned in a solid defensive display for Gareth Southgate’s men, who took the lead on 70 minutes through substitute Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain.

The Arsenal wide man drifted in from the right beyond Scott Brown before hitting a thunderous drive through a crowd of bodies and beyond Craig Gordon.

But there was a late twist when Celtic forward Leigh Griffiths stepped up to curl a free-kick beyond the grasp of Joe Hart to level things up at 1-1.

And just two minutes later, Jake Livermore bundled Chris Martin over in a similar spot to earn another free-kick which Griffiths despatched into the top left corner.

With Scotland heading for a historic victory, the Three Lions rallied in stoppage time and when Raheem Sterling sent an inviting ball into the box, captain Harry Kane ghosted in and steered the ball past Gordon to earn a share of the spoils.
