Guerrero scores twice on Peru return after doping ban

first_img0Shares0000Paolo Guerrero’s availability at the World Cup is a huge boost for Peru © AFP / Fabrice COFFRINIST. GALLEN, Switzerland, Jun 3 – Paolo Guerrero scored twice in a 3-0 friendly win over Saudi Arabia to cap an emotional week for the Peru captain who was cleared to play at the World Cup after his long legal battle against a 14-month drugs suspension.The 34-year-old striker won a last-ditch legal appeal on Thursday to appear at the tournament in Russia despite being banned after testing positive for traces of cocaine following a World Cup qualifier against Argentina last October. The Swiss federal tribunal, Guerrero’s last legal recourse, overturned a ruling by the Lausanne-based Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) that saw him suspended for 14 months.As well as allowing Guerrero to participate in the June 14-July 15 showpiece, it has also given the player hope of seeing his ban reduced or annulled as it ruled the CAS decision “unjustified”.Guerrero has played just a handful of matches for his Brazilian club Flamengo since he was initially banned on November 3, a ruling that forced him out of Peru’s two-legged World Cup play-off with New Zealand.But the former Bayern Munich star displayed no obvious signs of rust against Saudi Arabia in St Gallen, Switzerland, as his two goals sealed a convincing win after Andre Carrillo had fired the South Americans ahead on 21 minutes.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

EURO 2016 JOY: ‘I TOLD THE LADS TO MAKE THEMSELVES HEROES’ – CAPTAIN COLEMAN

first_imgSeamus Coleman leads by example against the Italians.Donegal soccer legend Seamus Coleman has revealed how he told his players to make themselves heroes as they took on Italy in the make-or-break Euro 2016 game last night.The modest Killybegs man was made captain by manager Martin O’Neill.And Seamie wrote another chapter in Donegal and Irish soccer folklore by helping his team step up to the plate. He said “I said to the lads before the game, ‘Let’s make ourselves heroes, there’s no reason why we can’t’ and we did that tonight.“I think the Belgium game was so important because we realised how poor we were and you could see from the off we wanted to play ball.“We know we’re good at keeping the ball. Against Belgium we didn’t do it. Tonight we did and we fully deserved that win.”Seamie admitted it was difficult to put into words what he was describing. But he said he knew himself and his team-mates simply had to do it for the fans.“It will be a game that will be remembered for a long time,” he told RTÉ Sport.“We fully deserved that win and our fans are so, so special.“We didn’t want to be the team that goes home and everyone to talk about how good your fans are but the team are gone.“We wanted to give them something to celebrate.” Coleman, who was making his 36th appearance, paid tribute to his family including his father on a night which saw fans at home and in France relish the atmosphere of getting out of the group stages.He said “Personally, to captain your country is something you dream of and to do it at a stage like this makes all them trips over and back to Sligo with my dad worth it,” he said.The Killybegs native was keen to acknowledge all the support he has received along the way and says it is a big motivating factor every time he takes to the pitch in a green jersey.“The support I have from everyone back home is unbelievable and I want everyone back home to know that I bring it with me wherever I go,” he said. “I’m out to do them proud. Let’s hope now against France we’re not finished. We’re going to enjoy tonight, delighted to get through, but this group of lads have big results in them.”EURO 2016 JOY: ‘I TOLD THE LADS TO MAKE THEMSELVES HEROES’ – CAPTAIN COLEMAN was last modified: June 23rd, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalEuro 2016italyseamus colemanlast_img read more
