Joe Hart dropped by Gareth Southgate for England's friendly against France

Dier's free-kick was well saved, but the ball was recycled and substitute Sterling's brilliant cross from the left was side-footed home on the volley by Kane, with Gordon left flat-footed.

The prolific Tottenham Hotspur striker donned the armband for the first time during a dramatic 2-2 World Cup qualifying draw with Scotland on Saturday (10 June) and will do so again in Paris tomorrow evening. "As soon as you concede free kicks in those areas in global football, you run the risk of being the victim of moments of high quality".

For Kane, captaining England for the first time, the experience was one to remember.

"I would say that is probably the most special moment for me", Kane said. "I think it's a significant goal for many different reasons".

"When I first came into the England squad, Wazza [Rooney] was great with me".

He added: "We said we had to expect the unexpected".

"We've obviously gone into this game without Jack (Wilshere), (Jordan) Henderson, (Danny) Drinkwater, (Fabian) Delph", Southgate said.

Lithuania grabbed a consolation goal in stoppage time through Darvydas Sernas, but its qualification hopes look bleak with just five points from six games. They have got great threats but we need to concentrate on ourselves.

Climate decision could accelerate damage to Trump properties
After over 250 U.S. mayors expressed their continued support for the Paris Agreement , states are also starting to take action. The vast majority of Americans - seventy percent of us - want to stay is this agreement endorsed by virtually the whole world.

Griffiths, 26, had never previously scored for Scotland and his goals drew rich praise from manager Gordon Strachan after a result that kept Scotland in fourth place in the pool. I have a steady mind and I know my ambitions, I know what I want to do, and this team has great ambition.

Griffiths felt Scotland had done themselves proud, despite not being able to hold on for what would have been a famous win. "We knew it was going to be tough away from home, global qualifier, Scotland are doing everything to stay in the World Cup".

"I should be absolutely delighted with two goals and man-of-the-match, walking in here with three points".

"We proved that on our day we can match anybody".

"We just tried to take as much as we could from what they told us into our game and I think we stood up and were counted. It's not three points but it could be a massive point in the end", he said.

The striker scored in injury time to break Scottish hearts after a Leigh Griffiths double had put Scotland within seconds of a historic win and three vital World Cup qualifying points.

"The first free-kick is careless, the second is a slip so I'm not sure there's a lot we could have done about that", he added. You can get moments in football, like today, where someone produces unbelievable quality and you find yourself level or behind in a game with the momentum against you and all of the crowd on a huge high.
