Sometimes, Twitter is good.

On Saturday, non-soccer-loving Americans were introduced to Jizz Hornkamp, a Dutch forward who plays for FC Den Bosch, a team in the Netherlands ‘ First Division (which is the second-highest tier, we know, it’s confusing).

The 22-year-old certainly made his mark on the day. With his side down 3-0, Hornkamp scored a goal at the 52-minute mark and proceeded to rattle off three more goals in the next 34 minutes in order to bring them into a 4-4 tie. Thanks to Hornkamp’s heroics, the game ended in a draw.

However, the one thing we haven’t quite noted just yet is that Jizz Hornkamp’s first name is Jizz. And while some soccer fans certainly noticed at the time that the man’s name also happens to be a slang term for semen, the wider world of sports became much more aware of this fact on Saturday. And as such, the tweets about Jizz came fast and they came hard.

 

Congrats to Jizz Hornkamp on his big day. We’re guessing his name is not pronounced how we’re all thinking it’s pronounced (kinda sounds like maybe it’s “geez”), but that doesn’t really matter for now, does it?
