The ex-Liverpool striker said England's youngsters on the night were "overhyped".
Considering the average age of Roy Hodgson's starting eleven last night was over 28-years-old, it's highly likely Owen was talking about the squad's two youngest members - 21-year-old Gunners star Jack Wilshere and 23-year-old Spurs right-back Kyle Walker.
Arsenal midfielder Wilshere has come in for some criticism after last night's performance, but he was by no means the only England player to struggle.
And Tottenham full-back Walker had a difficult night against Ukraine's brightest talent, Yevhen Konoplyanka, but he dealt with the threat admirably.
Still, Owen wrote on his Twitter account that he thinks the youngsters were "overhyped".
Owen said: "Our best players are still the older brigade. Gerrard, in particular is by far our best player. Some overhyped youngsters."
Owen also revealed he was surprised to see Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick omitted from the starting lineup, while he took a shot at those who pulled out of the squad.
In another Tweet, Owen wrote: "How many of the England players that pulled out of tonight's game will be available to play for their clubs this weekend?"
