Football: Totti hits 300-goal mark with Roma
Roma icon Francesco Totti reached another career landmark on Sunday by hitting his 300th goal for the Serie A club in what is his 22nd season in Italy’s top flight.
Totti, who made his senior debut with Roma in March 1993, pulled the Giallorossi level in the 36th minute after collecting Miralem Pjanic’s pass from midfield to beat Sassuolo goalkeeper Andrea Consigli from the edge of the area.
Totti was left on the bench last week when Roma fought to a 1-1 Champions League draw with defending champions Barcelona as coach Rudi Garcia continued to use the veteran forward sparingly.
He will celebrate his 39th birthday next week.
It was Totti’s 244th goal in Serie A. The veteran sits second in the all-time list behind Silvio Piola on 274.
