Luckily for everyone in Peru, the captain of the national team of Peru Paolo Guerrero was cleared to play for Peru at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. The Federal Court of Switzerland declared that at the moment the ban of Paolo Guerrero will be not counted as active. It had been stated that there are no problems for Guerrero to be part of the squad of Peru for the World Cup.
The 34-year-old forward and captain of Peru received a 14-month ban because of a cocaine usage. He was close to missing the World Cup tournament in Russia and the today’s update is counted as amazing for Guerrero. The national team of Peru had not qualified for a World Cup tournament since 36 years. For this reason, it was extremely important for Paolo Guerrero to have the chance to play in Russia. Guerrero who is one of the most successful Peruvian forwards in the history will be an integral part of the squad of Peru for the World Cup. The Incas are a fairly stable team that surely needs a good forward that can score goals. Paolo Guerrero had proved his goal-scoring abilities by scoring more than 100 goals for his club teams including Bayern Munich, Hamburger, Corinthians and Flamengo. For the national team of Peru, Guerrero had scored 32 goals in 86 games and now the opponents of the team at the World Cup (France, Denmark and Australia) will surely need to put an eye on him.
