Peru captain to miss World Cup after doping ban extended

Paolo Guerrero

The World Anti-Doping Agency appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, which imposed the 14-month ban.

Guerrero's absence will be a significant blow for Peru who have qualified for their first World Cup in 36 years and face Denmark, France and Australia in their Group C.

"Considering that, in case of no significant fault or negligence, the sanction should, in accordance with the applicable Federation Internationale de Football Association rules, be in the range of one to two years of suspension, the CAS Panel considered that the appropriate sanction would be 14 months in light of the Mr Guerrero's degree of fault". Taking into account the circumstances of the case, the FIFA AC imposed a 6-month period of ineligibility on the Player, instead of the 1-year minimum suspension provided by the FIFA Anti-Doping Regulations, applicable in case of no significant fault or negligence.

Peru captain Paolo Guerrero has been ruled out of the World Cup after a doping ban was increased from six months to 14 by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS), Brazilian television network Globo said on its website on Monday.

Peru fans showed their support for him in Geneva.

Mercedes explains stall in Lewis Hamilton contract talks
Despite back-to-back wins at the last two races, Hamilton was struggling for performance prior to the Spanish Grand Prix . It was the first time this season Mercedes finished 1-2, and also the first it locked the front row in qualifying.

Having completed the suspension and played two matches for his club Flamengo, Guerrero was handed the extended ban by CAS on Monday. A fan said that he had been looking forward to the World Cup, but with Guerrero's ban, there was nothing to be excited about anymore.

"The CAS Panel confirmed the existence of an ADRV [anti-doping rule violation] committed by Mr Guerrero, but also accepted that he did not attempt to enhance his performance by ingesting the prohibited substance", the CAS statement read.

The striker, also Peru's highest-ever scorer, returned to play for Flamengo earlier this month and scored his first goal since the suspension on Sunday.

This is the second ruling by CAS that has a huge impact on Peru's 2018 World Cup journey.

Bolivia fielded an ineligible player in a 2-0 win over Peru, and that result was overturned to a 3-0 loss by default. The three points helped Peru qualify for the playoffs- where they beat New Zealand to make it to Russia- at the expense of Chile.
