Totti is making his 90th appearance in Europe competitions tonight; Manchester city are making their 89th…

#Totti mocked the mere presence of Joe Hart there. Sublime finish.

Er cucchiaio = the spoon. Roman slang for delicate little chip. By scoring so many, Totti brought his dialect a little more into mainstream

Totti strolling around the Etihad like the well-upholstered Sunday league veteran with the best touch on the park

Someday Joe Hart will look back and appreciate the honor of being both panenka'd by Pirlo and chipped by Totti.

Wonder if the commentators will tell us how old Totti is at any point.

Totti: it's like seeing you're dad throw an impossible shot into the bin from across the kitchen.

Totti's amazing, but I do find it funny when people are like 'HOW ON EARTH CAN A 38 YEAR OLD DO SOMETHING IN LIFE.'?

Would be great if fox sports started calling Totti by his name instead of Tawtee

TOTTI has become the oldest player to score in a CL game: 38 years old. Eternal. (His First sticker 20 years ago) pic.twitter.com/mSa0aZZLWC

Would love to see Man City progress through the Group and still think they will. But I'd also love to be Francesco Totti and never grow old.

It's a shame Nastasic couldn't play today vs. Totti: He was born (28.03.1993) the same day Totti debuted with Roma
— MisterChip (English) (@MisterChiping) September 30, 2014
I swear Totti was like 32 on LMA manager 2002

Totti taunts City fans and players by rubbing his replacement hip. pic.twitter.com/AaLTP5I52q

Not sure Totti deserved to be booed off when substituted. Legendary figure, makes history. Booed.
— Mark Ogden (@MOgdenTelegraph) September 30, 2014
Totti is still mint. Must be 207 now

Totti trying to look all heroic and masculine and then… https://t.co/I9Dk4p63Fs

Francesco Totti made his debut in March 1993. The man who came on as a sub for him tonight, Juan Iturbe, was not even born.

Totti has made more history than Man City. #Fact

I said congratulations on breaking the record to Francesco Totti. He said Scusi? I said THE RECORD!… CONGRATULATIONS! He said Scusi?
