Peru captain Paolo Guerrero will be available for the 2018 World Cup after FIFA reduced his drugs ban to six months. Peru captain Guerrero could play in the World Cup after his 12-month ban for testing positive for cocaine was halved on appeal, which will allow him to play for Peru as the nation makes its first World Cup appearance since 1982.
The suspension period officially started on last month 3 November 2017. FIFA’s Disciplinary Committee provisionally suspended Guerrero for the one-year ban. He was suspended by FIFA on December 8 after testing positive for cocaine.
