Milan: Roma forward Francesco Totti, who will turn 40 next week, reached another career landmark against England goalkeeper Joe Hart on Sunday when he hit his 250th career goal in Serie A.

Totti, who will celebrate his birthday on Tuesday, came off the bench to help reduce arrears for the visitors when he beat Torino goalkeeper Hart from the spot with a 55th minute penalty.

 

Two years ago Totti, three days after his 38th birthday, became the oldest player to score in the Champions League when he beat Hart to score a 23rd minute leveller in a 1-1 draw at Manchester City.

It was the Roma icon's 300th career goal and his first on English soil.

Totti, who has played his entire career at Roma, is in his 25th and likely final season at the Serie A club.

Totti's goal, however, was not enough to claim a share of the points on this occasion.

Hart, who was forced out at City by new manager Pep Guardiola, was in superb form as the hosts romped to a 3-1 win at the Stadio Olimpico thanks to Andrea Belotti's early opener and a brace, including one from the spot, from Iago Falque.
