The Leeds United man drew a blank against Russia on Saturday.
New Zealand lost their Confederations Cup opener on Saturday as host nation Russia ran out 2-0 winners.
Michael Boxall's own goal on the half-hour mark sent the Russians on their way, before Fedor Smolov sealed the victory on 69 minutes.
Leeds United's Chris Wood cut a frustrated figure for much of it as the spearhead in the All Whites' attack.
The 25-year-old scored 30 goals for Leeds last season - including 27 in the Championship - but he was unable to influence things for his country.
But the former Leicester City man had one or two bright moments and here is how Twitter responded to his display.
I'd be happy with Chris Wood think he's a decent player— Steve (@Steve_WHU_) June 17, 2017
Can't believe Chris wood has just been compared to Leo Messi, get in the bin my mate— Tom Rogic (@MOapostropheH) June 17, 2017
Chris Wood has been isolated in the 2nd half. Either the Russians have marked him out of play or NZ midfield not giving him any service— Joel (@joelrudinas03) June 17, 2017
Chris Wood is more isolated upfront than Madagascar on a map of Africa.— Aanu Adeoye (@aanuadeoye) June 17, 2017

Any other Leeds fans wanting Chris wood to have a crap con fed cup put other teams off— stephen (@banditsteve123) June 17, 2017
Wood has been the subject of some speculation this month, with Huddersfield Town leading a host of Premier League clubs for his signature, according to The Sun.
Interested parties will not have been banging the Whites' door down on the back of his recent outing, but then again, he has proven himself a fantastic goalscorer in the Championship so his display against Russia won't have mattered much.
They were big underdogs to get anything from the game, such is the disparity in class between both teams, and better strikers than Wood would have struggled in this New Zealand side.
