Peru captain Paolo Guerrero was banned from playing at the World Cup because of a positive doping test he said was caused by contaminated tea.
CAS have today confirmed, however, that they have partially upheld the appeal filed by WADA against the decision issued by the FIFA Appeal Committee and banned the 34-year-old for 14 months, backdated to the start of his six-month ban, meaning he has a further eight months to serve.
Guerrero's absence will be a huge blow for Peru who have qualified for their first World Cup in 36 years and face Denmark, France and Australia.
But less than a week after he attended a CAS hearing in a bid to completely annul a ban for testing positive for traces of cocaine, CAS increased his sentence for falling foul of "an anti-doping rule violation (presence of Benzoylecgonine metabolites)".
Despite acknowledging Guerrero had no intention of taking a banned substance - his lawyer argued the stimulant was consumed by drinking contaminated tea - CAS ruled in line with WADA's wishes.
CAS accepted he did not intend to enhance his performance but ruled that Guerrero bore "some fault or negligence, even if it was not significant".
Guerrero marked his return from the Federation Internationale de Football Association ban with a goal for Flamengo in a 3-2 loss to Chapecoense.

Guerrero had played two games for his Brazilian club Flamengo, scoring in Sunday's 3-2 defeat against Chapecoense in the Brazilian championship, between the end of his original ban and the CAS verdict on Monday.
Bolivia fielded an ineligible player in a 2-0 win over Peru, and that result was overturned to a 3-0 loss by default.
Guerrero said "I am not going to the World Cup, that is too big of a hit". Without the three extra points, Peru would have fallen below Chile and Paraguay in the standings and out of contention.
