Totti ties for 2nd most goals in Serie A

The man who crushed the Socceroos in the 2006 World Cup, Roma captain Francesco Totti has tied Swedish great Gunnar Nordahl for second place on Serie A's all-time scoring list with his 225th goal.

Totti converted a penalty in the 16th minute of Roma's match against Genoa at the Stadio Olimpico on Sunday.

It was the 10th goal this season for the 36-year-old Totti, who is in his 21st season with Roma having made his debut for his hometown club as a 16-year-old.

Silvio Piola - who played for Pro Vercelli, Lazio, Torino, Juventus and Novara from 1929-54 - leads the all-time list with a seemingly insurmountable 274 goals.

Nordahl scored most of his Serie A goals with AC Milan but concluded his career with Roma in 1958.
