A trio of headers from Daniel Sturridge, Adam Lallana and Gary Cahill ensured a 3-0 victory on Friday that appeared far more convincing on the scoreboard than the actual performance by England in the 113th meeting of worldwide football's oldest rivals.
- Three different England players scored a header in the same game for the first time since March 2015 v Lithuania, when Wayne Rooney, Danny Welbeck and Harry Kane did so. We started sloppily and said a few things to one another at half time.
"I get that it isn't as enjoyable if you don't win but it's been a brilliant experience and I have taken so much from it, we have created a good environment", he said.
Whether Southgate is handed the job permanently will be determined after England hosts Spain in a friendly on Tuesday.
Southgate, however, said he has given little thought over the possibility of taking up the England job on a permanent basis.
Spain will also have rested a day less than England considering they play Macedonia on Saturday at home in their next World Cup qualification clash.
Gareth Southgate oversaw England's 3-0 win over Scotland on Friday.
Strachan's position is under increasing scrutiny, with Scotland having conceded six goals without reply in their last two qualifiers and already looking outsiders for a place at next year's World Cup.
The defeat was already ensured, but England should have rubbed further salt into Scotland's wounds but Sterling somehow scooped his finish over from nearly under the cross bar.
The chances continued to arrive in the opening five minutes of the half, and Snodgrass was denied by a fine block from John Stones moments later as the visitors pushed for an equalising goal. I don't know that we can work harder than we do.
"He has given good stability", he added.
"The game wasn't a 3-0 to England and that's disappointing", he said.
The Scotland boss was under enormous pressure before the game, and his job is now in serious jeopardy, with Sunderland manager David Moyes one of the people being touted around as a potential successor. They have been tremendous for me and again tonight.
Any hopes of a memorable Wembley comeback against the Auld enemy were ended shortly after the hour mark when England made it a hat-trick of headers on the night, with Cahill darting to the front post and glancing Rooney's corner past Craig Gordon. At the same time I feel really really hurt that they had to go through that last 15 minutes after putting in so much and believing in what we were trying to do.
