Francesco Totti becomes oldest Champions League scorer

Manchester: Roma`s talismanic striker Francesco Totti became the Champions League`s oldest ever goal-scorer when he netted in his side`s Group E game at Manchester City on Tuesday.

The former Italy international, who turned 38 on Saturday, raced through to chip City goalkeeper Joe Hart from team-mate Radja Nainggolan`s pass in the 23rd minute, after Sergio Aguero`s penalty had given the hosts the lead.

Totti takes the record from former Manchester United midfielder Ryan Giggs, who was aged 37 and 289 days when he scored in a 1-1 draw away to Benfica in September 2011.

It was also the first time in 10 matches that Totti had scored in a club game in England.
