KEIR RADNEDGE REPORTS: Scotland captain John Robertson left Wembley disappointed with only a draw against an England team whom the Scots had outrun and outpaced in their Euro 2020 goalless draw.
Robertson, asked after the final whistle whether he thought his team deserved all three points instead of just the one, said: “Yes, we did. I don’t think many can argue that we had the big chances.
“At times we kept the ball superbly well, frustrated them. On another night we could’ve came away with more but we took a point which keeps us alive. Now it’s important to use this feeling and the fans being happy to get a positive result [against Croatia] on Tuesday.”
England’s much-vaunted forwards were far below their best with England captain Harry Kane looking laboured and ineffective.
Robertson added: “Harry Kane is one of those players you have to keep a watch on along with Phil Foden but we kept him quiet and Raheem Sterling. The crowd erupted when Jack Grealish came on but we managed to keep him quiet as well.”
England manager Gareth Southgate accepted “a frustrating night.”
He said: “You’ve got to give Scotland huge credit. If you’re not going to win a game then it’s important that you don’t lose it. We can look at ourselves – starting with me – and do better. We didn’t do enough to win the game tonight.”
Kane had no complaint about the outcome.
He said: “Fair result, fair play to Scotland they defended well. It wasn’t our best performance, but it’s another point closer to qualification and that’s our ultimate goal. We just have to recover and look forward to our next game [against the Czech Republic].
“It was a tough game – Scotland defended really well, made good blocks at the right times. It’s not what we wanted but it’s one step closer to qualifying. One step at a time and we go again.”
