The captains of the three countries set to play Peru at the World Cup have co-signed a letter urging FIFA to find a way for team captain Paolo Guerrero – currently under a doping suspension – to play at next month's tournament.Guerrero tested positive for a banned stimulant after Peru's World Cup qualifier against Argentina in October and was initially suspended by FIFA for 12 months.The ban was reduced to six months by FIFA's appeal committee in December, allowing the 34-year-old forward to play again this month for Brazilian club Flamengo and prepare for the World Cup.But the Swiss-based CAS, on appeal from the World Anti-Doping Agency, last week extended the suspension to 14 months, effectively sidelining Guerrero for Peru's first World Cup tournament in 36 years.
