Harry Kane reacts to 1-1 draw against Poland: It was a tough one to take

Captain Harry Kane insisted England still remain on track for the World Cup despite Poland salvaging a late draw.

Daniel Szymanski's stoppage-time equaliser earned the hosts a 1-1 draw to deny the Three Lions victory in Warsaw after Kane's second-half opener.

It was the first points Gareth Southgate's side have dropped in Group I but they top the table by four points with four qualifying games to go.

Kane told ITV: 'It's a tough one to take, I thought we handled the game well. It's not an easy place to come and another tough game. We were seeing the game out well.

'Away from home sometimes the pressure builds and they put a good cross in and scored a good header, that's football. It's still been a great camp for us, we're still four points clear with four games to go.

'There were a couple of rebounds and second balls and it fell their way. We will learn from it and watch it back. There have been two tough away games in this camp, we're still four points clear and we're still in a great position.'

Kane had given England the lead with a superb 30-yard strike in the 72nd minute, which looked to have secured a big victory in their pursuit of qualifying for next year's World Cup finals.

Although England were unable to hold on, Kane has now pulled clear of Michael Owen by scoring his 41st goal for the national side - putting him in England's top five goal scorers.

There was a flashpoint at the end of the first half when Kamil Glik appeared to grab at Kyle Walker, an incident that incensed England's players.

Harry Maguire was booked, along with Glik and it will be looked at further by match officials.

England captain Kane added: 'There was an incident just before half-time which has been reported to the FA guys. They're taking care of it and investigating it and we'll go from there.

'Allegedly it was something that was done, not said. We haven't chance to look at the footage and talk to the lad.'
