Totti spoils Maldini's last home game

MILAN, Italy (AP) Paolo Maldini's last match for AC Milan at San Siro ended in a 3-2 loss to AS Roma on Sunday, with the 40-year-old defender's side beaten by Francesco Totti's late free kick.

Maldini, who made his Milan debut as a gangly 16-year-old substitute back in 1985, has won a string of trophies including seven Italian League titles and five European Cups with the club.

But there was no happy ending in front of the home fans as his side twice had to equalize before finally being beaten by Totti's free kick in the 85th minute.

Milan's last game of the season takes Maldini and his teammates to Fiorentina next weekend.
