Swansea City midfielder Jonathan de Guzman is buzzing over his goal against Valencia.

De Guzman earned a standing ovation after bending in a stunning set-piece to cap ­Swansea's 3-0 Europa League win at Valencia on Thursday.

Dutchman De Guzman said: "It was probably in the top three of free-kicks in my career.

"You don't score many goals like that, especially playing in a stadium like the Mestalla.

"It was a goal that was really special for me.

"I practise it quite often - and I have been doing it ever since I was young.

"It is one of my weapons, you could say. I have been taking set-pieces since I was a kid. In the academy at Feyenoord we practised it a lot.

"They groomed me there to take free-kicks and I took it with me."
