Rome: Roma captain Francesco celebrated scoring his first brace of goals this season by taking a `selfie` with a mobile phone after he levelled for the Serie A title challengers in the city derby against Lazio on Sunday.

Lazio stunned Rudi Garcia`s side when they took a 2-0 half-time lead following goals from Stefano Mauri and Felipe Anderson.

Totti reduced arrears with a fine angled strike three minutes after the restart and claimed his second just after the hour to set up a tense finale.

It was Totti`s 239th goal in Serie A, taking the 38-year-old to within 35 of Silvio Piola`s all-time record of 274.

Totti, who is in his 22nd season with the club, celebrated by taking a telephone from one of the Roma coaching staff and taking a `selfie` picture of himself before returning to the pitch.
