Conor Hourihane's first goal for Swansea in their Championship game against Brentford on Wednesday night was a life-changing moment for one fan of the Welsh club.

Republic of Ireland midfielder Hourihane has dipped into England's Championship division after failing to secure regular first team football at Aston Villa this season and his first major contribution to his new club looks set to leave a lasting legacy.

Twitter user Ashley declared that he would name his first son or daughter Conor if Hourihane scored directly from a free-kick and he duly delivered with a stunning strike after 67 minutes.

Inevitably, Ashley's Tweet then started getting a lot of interest, especially after Hourihane joined in with the fun as he sent a message to confirm he had seen the social media post.

Now Ashley might be about to have an uncomfortable conversation with the mother of his child, as he will be hoping he had a boy to resolve some of the issues he has created.
