The doping ban that will deprive Peru captain Paolo Guerrero of his long-awaited chance to play at the World Cup is unfair and defies common sense, the world players' union FIFPro said Tuesday.Guerrero had just completed a six-month ban after testing positive for cocaine, which was contained in a tea, when the Court of Arbitration for Sport increased the period to 14 months Monday.The extended ban, imposed after an appeal to CAS by the World Anti-Doping Agency, means the 34-year-old will miss next month's World Cup, where Peru have qualified for the first time in 36 years.In December, FIFA handed Guerrero a 12-month ban, ruling him out of the World Cup.
