Peru: Paolo Guerrero to miss World Cup after drugs ban increase
It reduced the ban in a fast-tracked appeal last December which clearing him to play at the World Cup.
Peru's joy has quickly turned to disappointment after captain Paolo Guerrero was ruled out of the World Cup after his doping ban, which had just expired, was increased from six to 14 months by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS).
Peru will be at this summer's 2018 World Cup for the first time since 1982 after its admirable showing on CONMEBOL's qualifying, but if hopes to do any damage at the tournament, it's going to have to without arguably its best and most high-profile player.
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".
"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 tested positive for cocaine metabolite benzoylecgonine following Peru'sWorld Cup qualifier against Argentina last October.
CAS heard the case after an appeal from the World Anti-Doping Agency, which had originally requested a 22-month ban. Paolo Guerrero sought to have the FIFA Decision set aside and replaced by a new decision in which no sanction was imposed on him.
Having completed the suspension and played two matches for his club Flamengo, Guerrero was handed the extended ban by CAS on Monday.
His lawyers argued Guerrero accidently consumed the stimulant by drinking contaminated tea and the player has protested innocence throughout the episode.
"WADA, on the other hand, had requested that the Federation Internationale de Football Association 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".
Guerrero has 32 goals for his country in 86 appearances.
