Swansea midfielder Shelvey full of pride over wonder goal

Swansea City midfielder Jonjo Shelvey has been reflecting on his wonder goal against Aston Villa.

The wonder strike will challenge Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney's effort, hit from a similar distance against West Ham last month, for goal of the season.

Shelvey said: "When I initially hit it I was not sure and I was walking away wondering what I had done, but then thankfully I saw it drop over the keeper's head.

"I looked to see if there were any options, there weren't so I thought I would smash it really and I struck it nice and with the wind it gave it a slice to take it away from the keeper.

"My family were up in a box in that corner and my little baby girl was up there so I wanted to celebrate in front of her."
