Football: AFC bans two players for doping violations

KUALA LUMPUR: Avchiev Takhir of Kyrgyzstan and Doan Ngoc Hao of Vietnam have been slapped with two-year bans for doping violations, the Asian Football Confederation (AFC) said on Saturday. Defender Avchiev failed a dope test following Kyrgyzstan’s May 19 match against Palestine during the AFC Challenge Cup, the AFC said in a statement. “He tested positive for Norandrosterone and is now banned from taking part in any football-related activity (which includes futsal and beach football) for two years...” football’s continental governing body said. Midfielder Hao tested positive for levo-methamphetamine after Vietnam’s April 30 match against Iraq at the AFC Futsal Championship. Both players were eligible to appeal their suspensions, the AFC added.
