Only two men have now scored more Serie A goals than Francesco Totti after the Roma ace bagged his 216th against Sampdoria.
The forward, who celebrates his 36th birthday today, joined third-placed Giuseppe Meazza and Jose Altafini in the all-time scorers’ charts last night.
Totti’s next target is Gunnar Nordahl’s tally of 225, but he’s unlikely to catch leader Silvio Piola. The Italian legend has 274 League goals to his name.
Top 10: 1 Silvio Piola 274, 2 Gunnar Nordahl 225, 3 Giuseppe Meazza, José Altafini and Francesco Totti 216, 6 Roberto Baggio 206, 7 Kurt Hamrin 190, 8 Giuseppe Signori and Alessandro Del Piero 188, 10 Gabriel Batistuta 184.
