Peru: Paolo Guerrero to miss World Cup after drugs ban increase

The Peruvian Football Federation said on its Twitter site that it would travel to Brazil “to visit our selected Paolo Guerrero” and take

The forward was originally banned from all FIFA competitions for a year, which would have kept him out of Russia had the ban not been reduced by FIFA, after an appeal, to six months.

The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has partially upheld the appeal filed by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) against the decision issued by the FIFA Appeal Committee (the FIFA AC) on 20 December 2017 (the FIFA AC Decision) in which a 6-month period of ineligibility was imposed on the Peruvian football player Paolo Guerrero further to an anti-doping rule violation (presence of Benzoylecgonine metabolites).

The court said on Monday the ban had been extended six months and will be lifted in January, meaning the 34-year-old Flamengo man will miss the rest of this season, the World Cup and the first half of next season.

"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 1 to 2 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".

Guerrero was subjected to an emotional roller-coaster after testing positive following the 0-0 draw in a qualifier away to Argentina in October.

Peru is in Group C with Australia, Denmark and France.

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.

CAS accepted he did not intend to enhance his performance but ruled that Guerrero bore "some fault or negligence, even if it was not significant".

The former Bayern Munich star has scored 32 goals in 86 appearances for Peru and was set to captain the team in its first World Cup appearance since 1982.

Bolivia fielded an ineligible player in a 2-0 win over Peru, and that result was overturned to a 3-0 loss by default.

"To the people who've contributed to this shameful injustice (I say to them), you are stealing my World Cup and perhaps also my career". The three points helped Peru qualify for the playoffs- where they beat New Zealand to make it to Russia- at the expense of Chile.
