Salvador Cabañas Ortega (born 5 August 1980) is a Paraguayan football striker who played for Club América in the Mexican Primera División. A prolific and natural goalscorer, he is known for his array of skills on the field such as excellent heading, accurate shooting with either foot, receptions in tight spaces, and a combination of technique, power and positional sense. He was shot in the head in January 2010, but survived the attack. Sixteen months after the assault he returned to football and participated in a tribute match for him between Paraguay's national team and Club America. Some doctors said that Salvador's survival is a miracle.
