36-year-old Dario Silva has returned to football after almost three years away - but he's done so in amazing circumstances.
ex-Uruguay international lost his lower right leg in a car crash in
September 2006, having last played professionally that February.
Considering his arduous recuperation, it was uncertain that he'd ever
be able even to walk again, let alone play football.
Yet he has
done just that by taking part in a charity match for the 'Fundación
Niños con Alas' (Children with Wings Foundation) to raise money for
needy youngsters in his country.
A team of domestic stars came
up against their Argentinean counterparts in Punta del Este, with Silva
donning the number 9 shirt just the way he used to.
As we can see, even the loss of limb hasn't dampened Dario's predatory instincts.
