FIFPro call Peru captain World Cup ban unfair and disproportionate

FIFPro call Peru captain World Cup ban unfair and disproportionate

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, 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.

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

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". They reduced the ban in a fast-tracked appeal last December which clearing him to play at the World Cup.

Peru's preparation for the Russian Federation 2018 World Cup [VIDEO] suffered a major hitch after their captain Paolo Guerrero lost an appeal for a failed doping test. Guerrero is facing a World Cup ban as a result.

While the court acknowledged that he did not intend to enhance his performance, it said he had acted in negligence and failed to take measures against doping violations.

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

Peru fans showed their support for him in Geneva.

His lawyers said that the Flamengo player had accidentally ingested contaminated tea.

Guerrero has scored 32 goals for his nation and helped the Peruvian national team finish third in the 2011 and 2015 Copa Americas when he was leading scorer in both contests.

"There is no reason for me to be suspended", he claimed after the match.

It is the second ruling from sport's highest court that has weighed heavily on Peru's first World Cup appearance in 36 years. The first one was being awarded a default win over their opponents, Bolivia, who were found guilty of fielding an ineligible player. Without the three extra points, Peru would have fallen below Chile and Paraguay in the standings and out of contention.
