Totti ties Nordahl with 225th goal – 2nd all-time
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.
