Salvador Cabanas at the top of his of his career until Mexican trafficker, named JJ Balderas, shot in the head at close range inside a bathroom of a nightclub.
Everyone thought he was going to die from gunfire, but miraculously survived. Fortunately, only suffers from memory loss for short term and is healthy today.
Tomorrow Salvador will returns after 18 months to play in the friendly match of America vs. Paraguay. He is expected to play only 10 minutes, but happy to have this opportunity to remind the players, fans and coaches what Salvador was.
We'll have to get back to where Cabanas debuted in Mexico. Salvador joined Jaguares de Chiapas in 2003 after having a striking career in Chile and his home, Paraguay. Salvador scored five goals in 18 for Chiapas subsequent to his initial season. Cabanas stepped up with immense time in next season by scoring 15 goals in 20 games.
As the scoring champion in 2006 in Chiapas, this attracted several teams including the United States whom he ultimately singed for. That might have been the best move in his career. Once the year was over, he scored a total of 33 goals and became the leading scorer.
In 2008, he also had a big, scoring 23 goals for the United States, and it was clear he was on his way to becoming something more than a great striker in his club.
2009 was another booming year in which he make 26 goals and after that in January 2009, scored his 100th goal in the Primera Division de Mexico.
When it was 2010, America was the favorite to win finals given the aptitude on their schedule. On January 24, 2010, he plays his very last match before being assaulted.
