Totti's 217th Serie A goal puts him 3rd all-time


GENOA, Italy (AP) -Francesco Totti has collected his 217th goal in Serie A to become the third most prolific scorer on the Italian league's all-time list.

The Roma captain found the net with a low, angled shot in the 27th minute of Roma's match at Genoa on Sunday, cutting Genoa's lead to 2-1. Roma came back to win 4-2.

Totti had been tied with Giuseppe Meazza and Jose Altafini on 216 goals. Silvio Piola holds the record with a seemingly unreachable 274 goals, followed by Gunnar Nordahl with 225.

The 36-year-old Totti is in his 21st season with Roma, having made his debut for his hometown club as a 16-year-old.

This was his second goal this season.
