Footballers names trend quite a lot on Twitter, especially when there is a big game on television.

Names such as Messi, Ronaldo, Ibrahimovic, Rashford and Rapinoe have topped trending charts numerous but we don’t think we’ve ever seen a name like this get so much attention.

Jizz Hornkamp is a 22-year-old Dutch striker who plays for Den Bosch in the Netherlands. He is considered to be an exciting young prospect in Dutch football and its easy to see why. After all, he did score four goals for Den Bosch in their 4-4 draw with Excelsior in the Dutch second division on Saturday.

His incredible goal-scoring feat soon saw him gain widespread attention across the globe. Unfortunately for Hornkamp it wasn’t because he scored all four goals but because of his first name, which in English means something completely different which we can’t type here.

Hornkamp’s first name was soon trending on US Twitter and you can imagine the majority of some of the jokes that were on offer.

Some cheeky individual even updated Hornkamp’s Wikipedia page.

Really struggling to not make any jokes right now…
