WADA agrees with FIFA probe results on alleged doping in Russian football
Earlier, Russia’s national football team doctor Eduard Bezuglov commented on the statement that the national team should be thoroughly checked for illegal use of drugs after it moved to the knockout stage of the 2018 World Cup.
The International Football Federation (FIFA) announced the consent of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) with the results of the investigation on alleged doping in Russian football, TASS reports.
"FIFA investigations were carried out jointly with WADA, WADA accepted the FIFA probe results," the FIFA press service says.
Also, the FIFA responded to the materials of British journalist Nick Harris, who wrote about a possible violation of anti-doping rules by Russian football players.
"As usual, Mr. Harris provides the public with a very selective view of the facts. His article gives ample space to the opinions of people external to the investigations, and voluntarily fails to state the key point of this matter: FIFA's investigations were conducted in collaboration with WADA, and WADA agreed with FIFA's conclusions. Therefore, we can only conclude that Mr. Harris believes that WADA's position is not relevant in this case," FIFA says.
