Peru captain Guerrero to miss World Cup due to drugs ban

Peru's forward Paolo Guerrero

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.

Guerrero, 34, tested positive for benzoylecgonine, a metabolite of cocaine, at a World Cup qualifier against Argentina in October of previous year.

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

The footballer's ban lapsed this month, but on Monday (NZT Tuesday) the court ruled Guerrero would now serve a 14 months suspension - an "appropriate sanction in light of Mr Guerrero's degree of fault".

This, the company says, is because there is little of it in the first place and because most is removed before it is seen. Over the past year , the company has repeatedly touted its plans to expand its team of reviewers from 10,000 to 20,000.

But CAS have increased Guerrero's suspension from six to 14 months on the basis that he did bear "some fault or negligence" for the positive test, and must therefore face a ban of between one and two years under FIFA's own anti-doping rules.

"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".

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

Peru fans showed their support for him in Geneva.

He has done fantastic this year and he looks like a great player, and we'll see if we can both continue it next season". Speaking to SSN reporter Ben Ransom, Kompany said: "We had a good season last season but these things take time.

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

The statement added: "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". Paolo Guerrero sought to have the FIFA AC Decision set aside and replaced by a new decision in which no sanction was imposed on him.

"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".

He has scored 32 goals in 83 appearances and is a galvanising presence for his team.
