Cabral, who last played in Brazil at U.D.A, is expected to available for selection when Mġarr face Hibernians this Saturday.

Meanwhile, Mġarr have also strengthened their forward line with the acquisition of Fernanda Peinado.

Peinado is familiar with Maltese football having been on the books of Swieqi United in the last couple of seasons.
