Francesco Totti enhances his record as oldest scorer

Moscow: Francesco Totti enhanced his record as the oldest scorer in the Champions League, the striker netting for Roma in their 1-1 draw at CSKA Moscow on Tuesday, at the age of 38 years, one month and 29 days.

The Roma talisman initially entered the competition`s history books on September 30, three days after turning 38, in his Serie A side`s 1-1 draw at Manchester City.

That goal from the former Italian international broke a record previously held by former Manchester United winger Ryan Giggs.

Giggs was aged 37 and 289 days when he scored in a 1-1 draw away to Benfica in September 2011.

In Moscow, Totti was on the mark from a free kick in the Group E game played out to empty stands as CSKA serve a spectator ban.

A Champions League winners medal is the one major honour missing from World Cup winner Totti`s trophy cabinet after a career that has made him an idol in his home city.
