Pape Souare is lucky to be alive let alone back on his feet. A year ago the Crystal Palace defender was in a horrific car crash on the M4 which left him with a broken jaw bone and thigh bone.
At his home in Vauxhall he told ITV News he thought his career might be over.
Souare has been at Crystal Palace since 2015 and has made more than 50 appearances for the club.
He has been posting videos online showing his gradual progress back to fitness but says he is taking his recovery one step at a time.
He now wants to impress Roy Hodgson who was appointed as the club's manager earlier this week.
