"We stayed calm", Kane said.
"I've also seen Scotland's best-ever free kick and then I've also seen Scotland's second-best-ever free kick". Whatever anybody thinks about us as a group of players, one thing you can't question is their personality, character and commitment.
"This is a tough place to come". Before the game we would have taken the point but it was just the way it happened, but that's football for you.
"I thought the boys put a great effort in, especially as some hadn't played for a long time and you could see we were getting a wee bit exhausted towards the end".
Harry Kane was to then inevitably spoil the Scottish party in injury time. "We did that and it was a real quality finish under pressure to get the point".
"There were a lot of positives to take. They keep coming back at you", he said.
"We got ourselves into decent positions, but could not finish". They were like a heavyweight boxer and we were middleweight, which we expected.
"It was great for me personally to lead the team out, a very, very proud moment and to get that goal at the end made it even more special", said the striker.
"But that's why he's a top player. Someone else might not have done that".
The Three Lions took the lead in the 70th minute when Oxlade-Chamberlain, who had only been on the pitch for two minutes, scampered into the right side of the area and fired a shot through the legs of Stuart Armstrong which Gordon saw at the last second and failed to prevent it going past him. One pass, one header goes somewhere else and we win the game.
"I was trying to get a good contact on it and side-footed into the net".
It meant England avoided a first qualifying defeat since October 2009.
History has shown some players just can't recreate their exploits for their club on the global stage, but Kane is unlikely to fall into that bracket and his late strike to save the day may be a significant sign post and see him appointed captain on a permanent basis. I didn't want to lose my first game as England captain, especially against Scotland.
"It is annoying for them - I can't be annoyed".
Julian Draxler, one of the few regulars in a weakened Germany squad, opened the scoring before Wagner claimed his first global goal five minutes later, and he didn't have to wait long before claiming his second, after fans indulged in Mexican waves. I am not someone who gets too irate or too low.
"But the second one we had the ball on the counter and we've lost it and we weren't set up to defend".
