This Francesco Totti goal will bring nostalgic tears to your eyes. Remember that majestic Italian player who retired only recently?
Francesco Totti was one of those players who gave the beautiful game all of its romantic allure.
Totti never played for another team different than Roma. He holds the record of most appearances for the club with a total of 786 in all competitions, 619 of them in Serie A.
Moreover, he was unquestionably one of the most talented players of his generation.
Alongside the likes of Paolo Maldini, Genaro Gattuso, Andrea Pirlo and Alessandro Del Piero, Totti was part of one of Italy's golden generations. He won the World Cup for Italy in 2006.
Il Gladiatore scored a total 307 goals during his 25-year senior career playing for Roma.
Even during his last years for Roma, Totti would only need a few minutes on the pitch to make a difference.
In 2016, Roma was losing 2-1 against Torino. Totti came in as a sub in the 86th minute. And then this happened.

Totti needed only four minutes to change the outcome of the match from defeat to victory.
When Il Capitano retired in 2017, many of us thought we would never again see a magical Totti goal.
Fortunately, we were all wrong.
Look at the jewel Il Capitano gifted us. Was there any other way he could have scored that goal? Is there anyone else in the world who could score such a beauty?
