FIFPro calls for football doping reforms after Guerrero banned for World Cup

FIFPro calls for football doping reforms after Guerrero banned for World Cup

But, per Sky Sports, the Court of Arbitration (CAS) for Sport upheld an appeal by the World Anti-Doping Agency to extend said ban after it expired this month.

Peru will fight it out with France, Denmark and Australia for qualification from Group C. This is Peru's first-ever appearance in football's biggest stage since 1982.

The 34-year-old tested positive for cocaine after the qualifier against Argentina on 6 October.

The footballer's ban lapsed this month, but on Monday (NZT Tuesday) the court ruled Guerrero would now serve a 14 months suspension - an "appropriate sanction in light of Mr Guerrero's degree of fault".

The Peruvian Football Federation have officially confirmed that captain Paolo Guerrero has been chosen in the Peru national football team's FIFA World Cup 2018 squad following the expiration of a narcotics ban.

The court has since announced that their judging panel "also accepted that he did not attempt to enhance his performance by ingesting the prohibited substance".


News of extension of the ban was not well received among Peru fans.

Peru captain Paolo Guerrero will miss this summer's World Cup through suspension.

Despite acknowledging Guerrero had no intention of taking a banned substance - his lawyer argued the stimulant was consumed by drinking contaminated tea - CAS ruled in line with WADA's wishes. WADA, on the other hand, had requested that the FIFA AC decision be set aside and that Paolo Guerrero be sanctioned with a period of ineligibility between 1 and 2 years with an expressed preference for 22 months.

"Today I feel like my dreams, first of playing football and second of playing in a World Cup after 36 years, I feel like they're gone".

CAS said that Guerrero bore "some fault or negligence, even if it was not significant, and that he could have taken some measures to prevent him from committing an anti-doping violation".

Guerrero, who is Peru's all-time record scorer with 32 goals, played for Brazilian side Flamengo last week on May 6 at the conclusion of his six-month ban. Without the three extra points, Peru would have fallen below Chile and Paraguay in the standings and out of contention.
