FIFA reports 0 doping cases in World Cup testing

MOSCOW — FIFA has reported no doping cases from almost 4,000 samples taken since January in a testing program for the World Cup.

The last World Cup doping case involved Argentina’s Diego Maradona at the 1994 tournament in the United States.

The 2018 testing program includes 626 samples taken during the competition, including two players from each squad drawn to give samples after games. A total of 108 of the samples were collected on non-match days.

Some players from the four teams still playing in Russia have been tested eight times this year, soccer’s world body said.
