McCoist reveals Wright was ‘giving it to the Scotland fans’ when Kane scored for England

Date Posted,June 10, 2017

Ian Wright was ‘giving it to the Scotland fans’ during England’s 2-2 World Cup qualifying draw at Hampden Park.

That’s according to Ally McCoist, who excitedly recalled the moment from the ITV studio following the fixture.

“You see the punters outside there, they were giving it to Wrighty and Wrighty was giving it back to them,” explained the former Rangers boss.

“It was magic. I was up there, Wrighty was down there, wonderful.”

Lee Dixon also spoke out about the game’s thrilling final minutes, saying: “I have to say probably the best game I have ever watched for emotion, watching it with him [McCoist] and Wrighty and all those people out there.

“Gordon [Strachan] was right, I have never been that emotional watching a football match, it’s just absolutely incredible.”

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain broke the deadlock for England after coming on as a substitute. He wormed his way into the box on 70 minutes and beat keeper Craig Gordon from close-range.

Gareth Southgate’s men looked set to record a victory as the game wound down, but Leigh Griffiths bagged an equaliser with a stunning free-kick.

He then followed this up with an almost identical set-piece on 90 minutes, and Scotland were heading for victory.

But Harry Kane had the final say with a volleyed goal from close-range to spare Southgate’s blushes.
