CHERRIES winger Ryan Fraser made a telling impact on his Scotland debut as the Tartan Army shared a topsy-turvy 2-2 World Cup qualifying draw with England.

Fraser had been on the pitch 19 minutes – and watched on helpless as Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain thrashed England into a 70th-minute lead – when he was upended by defender Gary Cahill 25 yards from goal.

Celtic striker Leigh Griffiths took the 87th-minute free-kick and brilliantly bent it inside England 'keeper Joe Hart's left-hand post.

And Gordon Strachan's team thought they had won the match when Griffiths sensationally repeated the dose three minutes later, defeating Hart on his opposite side following Jake Livermore's foul on Chris Martin.

That goal sparked scenes inside Hampden Park that Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville likened to those which greeted Sergio Aguero's Premier League-winning strike for Manchester City five years ago.

Three minutes into stoppage time, however, Harry Kane met substitute Raheem Sterling's deep cross from the left to salvage a draw for the Three Lions.

Fraser – who was set for his first Scotland appearance back in March only to sustain an injury shortly after joining up with the squad – replaced West Ham attacker Robert Snodgrass with 23 minutes to play, to win his long-awaited maiden full cap.

The Scots don't play again until September 1, when they face Lithuania in their next Group D encounter.

England play France in a friendly on Tuesday night, when Cherries target Jermain Defoe will expect to feature after a late cameo at Hampden.

Elsewhere, Benik Afobe had his first taste of competitive international action in DR Congo's 3-1 Africa Cup of Nations qualifying victory over Congo in Kinshasa.

Afobe replaced former Chelsea attacker Gael Kakuta nine minutes after half-time, when the teams were level at 1-1 after Thievy Bafouma had cancelled out Cedric Bakambu's 20th-minute opener.

Shortly after Afobe's arrival, though, prolific Villarreal forward Bakambu hit his second goal of the game to restore DR Congo's lead.

The Cherries player was then heavily involved in the build up to his side's third, scored by Newcastle defender Chancel Mbemba on the stroke of full-time.

Afobe made a goalscoring debut for his country last Monday as DR Congo beat Botswana 2-0 in a friendly encounter in Moroccan capital Rabat.

Another Cherries striker, Joshua King, was not involved for Norway in their World Cup match against Czech Republic.

The Norwegians drew the Group C game 1-1, leaving them nine points behind second-placed Northern Ireland after Michael O'Neill's team won 1-0 in Azerbaijan courtesy of Stuart Dallas's last-gasp goal.
