ASUNCION, PARAGUAY (AP) - Two years after he was shot in the head at close range in a Mexico City bar, Paraguayan soccer player Salvador Cabanas is set to attempt a comeback with a third-division club in his home country.
Cabanas was playing with America when he was shot on Jan. 25, 2010, in a bar in an upscale neighborhood in the Mexican capital. A bullet fragment remains in his skull because doctors decided it was too risky to remove.
As part of his therapy, the 31-year-old player has trained with the national team, but few expected him to return to competition.
