West Ham fans praise Andriy Yarmolenko for Ukraine display

Andriy Yarmolenko helped Ukraine record a win over Portugal on Monday night – and some West Ham fans raved about their player on Twitter for his international performance.

The 29-year-old attacker scored a decisive goal in a 2-1 victory in a European Championship group stage qualifier.

Roman Yaremchuk opened the scoring early for hosts Ukraine and Yarmolenko added a second in the 27th minute, which turned out to be the match-winner.

A selection of West Ham supporters on social media praised Yarmolenko following his display.

The right-winger has started the new campaign with three goals in seven Premier League games and looks a talisman at the London Stadium right now.

He had to deal with a long-term injury last season, but now looks back to his best and continued his form in a Ukraine shirt too.

The dazzling wide man now has 37 goals for his national side and can be a major goal threat when he drifts inside from the right flank.

Here are some West Ham fans on Yarmolenko:
