Super Eagles took immediate control of the game, with an early goal from Joe Aribo. The Rangers midfielder finished off a fine team play in the third minute to make it 1-0. Gernot Rohr’s men went into the break 2-0 up, after Victor Osimhen fired in a penalty that was won by Samuel Kalu.

However, they conceded two goals in as many minutes in the second half. First, Oleksandr Zinchenko dribbled his way through to pull one back, before Roman Yaremchuk bundled in the equalizer.

After the game, Nigeria football fans took to Twitter to criticize the performance of Samuel Chukwueze and Moses Simon.

Chukwueze who started the game on the right wing was sruntinised for being selfish and wanting to impress at all cost with some individual brilliance.

Avuwa Oteri@josephoteri

Chukwueze is talented but he is a selfish player You need team play to win matches. Osimen needs to cool his temperament and annoyance when ball is not passed to him, Referees don’t like players who contest every of their actions. A good psychologist should help the team grow 

Onwuna|i Chin£du@chinaydo

Iwobi front of goal had the option to gently pass the ball to osimhen, instead the toed the ball. Chukwueze had several chances in front of ball, poor shooting technique and leg placement, is it the fault of the coach again or the so called “bad luck” jersey ?

Chukwueze Needs to calm down it’s obvious the praises are beginning to get to his head, he was really selfish at some point, they would have buried that game long before Ukraine started finding their Rhythm, he behaved like Salah most of the time

Ukraine hold Super Eagles in Dnipro – TODAY

The Super Eagles of Nigeria lost a 2-0 lead to draw 2-2 against Ukraine in an international friendly in Dnipro, Ukraine.

The Lord is Good@jaiye539

Chukwueze and victor are too selfish in the first half Nigeria should have wrap up the game with 4-0 in first half but they all want to shine. Chukwueze is the most culprit. I think team win is better than individual glory?

Those chances chukwueze missed though… They would have converted it to go, if he had released most of them.

Chukwueze was too selfish for my liking.
He wasted a lot of chances.

Those guys played cool and interesting football only for the officials to ruin it all and some selfishness from Chukwueze with some wastefulness#UKRNGA

However, Simon who was a second-half substitute shared a part of the criticism for failing to impress in the game.

Let’s be honest: Moses Simon is not good enough to even be a squad player on this team.

Except we playing against an extremely good left winger that would bombard our RB, don’t see why Moses Simon should be playing for Nigeria.

When was the last time Moses Simon successfully completed a one-on-one dribble?

You have good observation skill.

Moses Simon is surplus to requirement. Kalu was holding that flank till Kardashian Moses showed up 

Replying to @NGSuperEagles

Esiti and M.Simon were our weak links. Aribo was doing a fantastic job in shielding d defence alonside Etebo until that Heavy-Lousy Esiti replaced him in that position while Aribo was moved forward.
As for Simon, he killed our attack by being wasteful.

Our LB you meant?
I just feel Aina can do a better job at LB and Awaziem at RB.
Moses Simon should retire from International football

Moses Simon is a statue. Dude can’t dribble a nepa pole. Ola Aina and j Collins are good. I think we need a stronger 4. Osimen should calm down.

1. Moses Simon shouldn’t be in this team anymore. I cant remember the last time he completed any take on.
2. Aribo is a great addition to the team.
3. Chukwueze needs to know this is a team game. He’s been selfish
4. The future is bright for the super Eagles.
