Peru Captain Banned by FIFA for 1 Year after Testing Positive for Cocaine

MADRID – The FIFA Disciplinary Committee announced on Friday that it has suspended the captain of the Peruvian national soccer team, Paolo Guerrero, for one year after he tested positive for cocaine in a doping control test in October.

FIFA confirmed the decision by its disciplinary committee and notified that the period of suspension began on Nov. 3.

Guerrero tested positive for a cocaine metabolite benzoylecgonine in the test conducted on Oct. 5 in Buenos Aires after a 2018 FIFA World Cup qualification match against Argentina.

Cocaine metabolite benzoylecgonine is among the stimulants included on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s banned substance list.

“By testing positive for a prohibited substance, the player has violated article 6 of the FIFA Anti-Doping Regulations and, as such, contravened article 63 of the FIFA Disciplinary Code,” FIFA said in a statement.
