LA PAZ: Bolivia goalkeeper Leo Fernandez has agreed to complete a 60-hour community service sentence for faking an assassination attempt on himself, legal sources said on Wednesday without explaining the motive for his actions.
The incident happened on Nov 7 last year when police in the eastern city of Santa Cruz said that two men on a motorbike fired shots at Fernandez's car that had stopped at a traffic light.
Fernandez, who played for local club Oriente Petrolero at the time, was driving home after a game with team mate Lucas Fernandez.
Fernandez has been included in the Bolivia squad for the World Cup qualifiers away to Chile tomorrow and Paraguay four days later. – Reuters
