Last quote by Gareth Southgate on Scottish independence

There's no-one else. We've obviously gone into this game without Jack (Wilshere), Henderson, Drinkwater, Delph if you are looking at English players playing. There's no-one else. You are talking about Carrick and Barry so that is the concern in terms of numbers of players and that is part of the challenge. In terms of the task that we have got, that bit can't be underestimated. But we have to hope there are some young players in the under-21s and under-20s that can add to that. We have got talent coming through, they need opportunities.feedback

All quotes by Gareth Southgate on Scottish independence

He finished the season in great form and any team would want a finisher of his quality in their side.feedback

I wanted to give him that boost. He was pretty chuffed. It's a great honour for any player and their family. Harry is a player who we have worked with in the Under-21s before. He's got a terrific mentality and I know he is delighted to be leading the team.feedback

Harry Kane will captain the side tomorrow. Obviously we have shared the leadership around and I think that's been important for us as a team. People have said to me there are a lack of leaders in the team and I don't see that to be the case. I felt it important to try and give people the opportunity to lead in different ways. Everybody's different, everybody has different leadership styles, has a different impact on the game and around the training ground and the hotels, in meetings and Harry's one of a number of people I could have given that opportunity to tomorrow.feedback

Somebody has to protect him, somebody has to manage the development of a young player, and that has to be my call. Marcus is in the senior squad on merit, and has been for a year. His performances warrant him being in the senior squad. He could still have gone with the under-21s afterwards but that would not be right. He is a 19-year-old player who has had an exceptional season but by that point he will be close to 60 matches.feedback

The Scotland game is one of football's great fixtures. We're in a place in the group where a win can really put us in a very strong position, and that's what we want to achieve. France is a great challenge for us. Our ambition with our friendly matches is to play the best possible teams – we've done that by playing Spain and Germany already. They're teams we want to test ourselves against and these are great opportunities to learn and improve.feedback

I think we've got to look every time we get together as to who is in form. We don't have a lot of players in the country who can beat people in one-versus-one situations and he's explosive in those types of areas. He's improving all the time and has the hunger and desire to improve. He's a ballsy player and I like that about him as well. The group is in our hands, which is the most important thing. But we know what Scotland will be like and we have to play on a plastic pitch in Lithuania. We have to keep improving with every performance.feedback

There are times when you know you're going to win the game and you maybe don't hit the levels some of the players did against Germany. There've been some good things – two very young centre-backs, which is a plus for us in the way they defended. [Keane] has been a real bonus. Obviously we knew about him but you're never sure how he'll cope. To make a full debut away in Germany and play the way he did... today, he was excellent. We obviously know that going to Scotland will be a difficult game and Lithuania on the plastic [pitch] will be a different sort of test.feedback
