Cabanas, who still has the bullet lodged in his head, played most of the first half of a 2-0 win over Martin Ledesma which was secured with two goals after the break. 

Cabanas was shot by a drugs baron in the toilets of a Mexico City bar on January 25, 2010 during an argument as he enjoyed a day off from training with then Mexican side Club America.

The injury meant the striker missed out on a call-up for the World Cup that summer, where Paraguay reached the quarter-finals before bowing out to eventual champions Spain.
