Peru captain Guerrero banned from World Cup despite CAS appeal

16 May 2018

Guerrero had just completed a six-month ban after testing positive for cocaine, which was contained in a tea, when the Court of Arbitration for Sport increased the period to 14 months Monday.

Peru captain Paolo Guerrero will miss this summer's World Cup through suspension due to a positive doping test.

Paolo Guerrero is out, and if that's an unfamiliar name, you're obviously not Peruvian.

The extended ban, imposed after an appeal to CAS by the World Anti-Doping Agency, means the 34-year-old will miss next month's World Cup, where Peru have qualified for the first time in 36 years.

Billionaire's latest brush with trouble as £70m Picasso pulled from auction
In 2006 the billionaire put his elbow through Picasso's 1932 " Le Reve " whilst showing it to guests in Las Vegas. A restorer said the repaired painting was worth $85 million, according to the lawsuit.

World footballers' union FIFPro has condemned the 14-month drugs ban that will rule Peru's captain and record goalscorer Paolo Guerrero out of the World Cup as "unfair and disproportionate".

CAS judges accepted Guerrero did not intend to consume cocaine metabolites, nor enhanced his performance in a World Cup qualifier last October.

"Both FIFA and the Court of Arbitration for Sport agreed Guerrero did not knowingly ingest the substance and that there was no performance-enhancing effect".

Guerrero was serving a suspension when Peru beat New Zealand 2-0 over two legs in last November's intercontinental World Cup play-off.

Wisconsin senior prank so good even police give it respect
The group staged the "accident" right outside of the principal's office, the school district said. "It looked very, very real". The senior class at Cumberland High School apparently set up this vehicle to look like it had smashed into the school.

Guerrero, who has denied wrongdoing throughout, had also appealed to CAS to request the ban be annulled altogether.

Accepting Guerrero's argument that the substance was accidentally consumed in contaminated tea, Federation Internationale de Football Association reduced the ban to six months, a period which would have enabled Guerrero to play in Russia, and he was duly named in Peru's provisional squad on Sunday.

"However, the panel considered that the player did bear some fault or negligence, even if it was not significant, and that he could have taken some measures to prevent him from committing the ADRV".

Peru, who have made it to the World Cup qualification for the first time since dating way back in 1982, will be playing the group stage round with Australia, Denmark and France in Group C in Russian Federation.
