Peru's captain Paolo Guerrero will miss the World Cup in Russia after his doping ban, which had just expired, was increased from six to 14 months, the Court of Arbitration for Sport said Monday.The 34-year-old was initially banned for 12 months by FIFA, which was then reduced to six months on appeal.Guerrero, who has denied wrongdoing throughout, had also appealed to CAS to request the ban be annulled altogether.Guerrero's absence will be a significant blow for Peru who have qualified for their first World Cup in 36 years and face Denmark, France and Australia in their first-round group.
