Gustavo Daniel Cabral (born 14 October 1985) is an Argentine professional footballer who plays for Spanish club Celta de Vigo as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

Born in Isidro Casanova, Cabral made his first team debut in 2003 for Racing Club. He played 112 games for Racing until 2008, when he joined River Plate.[1] Cabral was a first team regular in River's defense during the Torneo Clausura 2008 won by the club.

After being highly contested by River's supporters, Cabral moved abroad, joining Mexican club Tecos F.C. in June 2010.[2] Despite being a regular with the Mexican side, he returned to his country in the following year, signing with Arsenal de Sarandí.

On 10 August 2011 Cabral was loaned to La Liga side Levante UD in a season-long deal.[3] He made his division debut on 3 December, coming on as a second-half substitute in a 0–5 away loss against FC Barcelona.[4] On 13 June 2012, Cabral was loaned to fellow top-divisioner Celta de Vigo.[5] He signed permanently with the Celestes in the 2013 summer.

International career[edit]

In 2005 Cabral was part of the Argentina U20 team that won the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship. In 2007 Cabral was called up to the national team for a friendly against Chile but did not feature in the match.
