Paraguayan ace shot

MEXICO CITY, January 26 – Paraguayan striker Salvador Cabanas, who helped his nation qualify for the World Cup, was in critical condition in a Mexican hospital after being shot in the head Monday at a Mexico City bar.

The 29-year-old forward for Club America of the Mexican league was shot in the front of the head and doctors were trying to remove the bullet.

The Paraguayans will face defending champion Italy, Slovakia and New Zealand in the opening round of the World Cup, which begins June 11 in South Africa.

While Cabanas has played in Mexico since 2003, Sunderland of the English Premier league had shown interest in obtaining him earlier this month.

Cabanas has scored 125 goals in 218 games in Mexico and is a former scoring champion in both Mexico and Chile.
