The FIFA Disciplinary Committee have handed Peruvian forward Jose Paolo Guerrero a six-game ban for insulting the match official during his country's 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ qualifying defeat against Uruguay. The game took place on 17 June 2008 in the Estadio Centenario in Montevideo.

The suspension, which is accompanied by a fine of CHF 10,000, means the Hamburg player will be unable to represent his country in a competitive match until 6 June 2009, when Peru are set to host Ecuador in South Africa 2010 qualifying action.
