Throwback To Francesco Totti Celebrating A Rome Derby Goal With A Selfie

On Sunday, Roma take on Lazio in the Derby della Capitale in what could well be the last ever derby appearance the legendary Francesco Totti plays in.

The 40-year old's contract expires at the end of the season and it's possible that Totti will finally hang up his boots at the end of the season and call time on his decorated career. A non-playing role within his beloved Roma has been mentioned.

'Il Capitano' absolutely loves a goal against arch-rivals Lazio and is the top scorer in Rome derbies, finding the net 11 times.

And one of his most memorable strikes and celebrations came in the 2-2 draw in January 2015.

Totti single-handedly grabbed a point for Roma at the Stadio Olimpico, scoring twice.

His second was a stunning acrobatic volley, where the memorable selfie celebration followed.

After scoring an equaliser to make it 2-2 Totti ran over to the Roma fans to celebrate, however his festivities weren't done with.

After coming away from the crowd, the Rome legend signalled to a coach who had come over to join in, the coach handed him his phone and the Italian proceeded to a selfie with himself and the crowd.


Only Totti could get away with such a celebration that came after an equaliser with 25 minutes remaining in the game.

Commenting on the celebration, the Giallorossi skipper said:

"I thought about it during the week.

"Although it's in fashion, I don't usually take them because I want my private life to stay that way, but this was a special occasion, something to be remembered for a long time."

If selected in today's game, Francesco will no doubt be wanting to terrorise Lazio once more - especially with it potentially being his last opportunity to do so.
