Failed test for Jamaican player
The Jamaican Football Federation has confirmed one of its players failed a doping test following the World Cup qualifier against Honduras on June 11.
The news is a further blow to sport in the country after sprinters Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson tested positive for the banned stimulant oxilofrine last month.
The JFF released a statement in which it announced it had been informed by FIFA of the positive result.
"During the World Cup Qualifying match, Honduras vs Jamaica, on June 11, 2013 a member of the Jamaican squad returned an adverse analytical finding on his urine sample." the statement said.
The JFF is awaiting further news from FIFA although an internal investigation has been opened by the chairman of the JFF Medical Committee.
