Francesco Totti scores record-breaking derby goal, takes selfie with his phone

Francesco Totti is a 38-year-old man, but for a few moments during Sunday’s Rome derby, he was a teenager again. The Roma captain scored twice in the second half to come back from a 2-0 deficit against Lazio and his 64th-minute equalizer was a stunner of a flying karate kick volley at the far post. He then celebrated by taking a selfie with his own phone in front of the Roma fans of the Curva Sud.

The match ended in a 2-2 draw and afterwards, Totti explained his actions. From Football Italia: “I thought about it during the week. There is this fashion for selfies now and I like to keep my private life to myself, but this was a unique opportunity that would never be repeated. It was my phone and I asked Guido Nanni to bring it to me if I scored.” Meanwhile, Lazio Supporters took a different kind of selfie…

The brace gave Totti 11 Derby della Capitale goals in Serie A — a new record. And he has a duckface selfie to always remember it by. Because, as proves time and time again on the pitch, he is eternally 17 years old.
