Bonet could be deployed as a right-back or wing-back in South Africa but often plays as a right-sided midfielder at club level. He started the first two games at the 2006 World Cup in midfield before missing the win against Trinidad and Tobago with a hamstring injury.
He recently returned to Paraguay after two seasons with Mexican side Cruz Azul. Last year he sent his family back home after becoming unnerved by the swine flu scare. He was unwilling to take any risks, having contracted dengue, a dangerous tropical fever, in 2007.
Bonet was a surprise selection for the 2002 World Cup, when got the nod from Cesare Maldini despite not playing in qualifying. He made his name with Libertad but now plays for rivals Olimpia, whom he joined last year.
