Gunshot victim Cabanas to play again

Two years after being shot in the head, Paraguay striker Salvador Cabanas is set to return to professional football with boyhood team Club 12 de Octubre, according to reports in his homeland.

Cabanas received a near-fatal gunshot wound to the head during a disagreement in a Mexico City bar on January 25, 2010 and still has the bullet lodged in his brain.

However, the 31-year-old has made a full recovery and after being given the all clear by doctors is set to be unveiled by Paraguayan Segunda Division club 12 de Octubre this weekend.

Cabanas began his career at the Itaugua-based side in 1998, moving to Audax Italiano of Chile and then Mexican club Jaguares de Chiapas before joining Club America in 2006, where he scored 66 goals in 115 league games for the Estadio Azteca side.

He was shot during his stint at the Mexican club and missed Paraguay's 2010 World Cup campaign. He had scored ten goals in 44 appearances for the national side.
