19 juillet 2002 10:45

LISBON, July 19 (AFP) - Portuguese international goalkeeper Joaquim Silva, known as Quim, has been suspended for six months for testing positive for the banned anabolic steroid nandrolone, the disciplinary commission of the Portuguese Football League revealed Friday.

The suspension will finish on August 15, ten days before the Portuguese league gets underway.

Quim, 26, had been suspended as a precautionary measure on February 15 after testing positive last October following a Portuguese first division match between his team Sporting Braga and Maritimo Funchal.

A 'B' test at the end of January confirmed the test although Quim continued to protest his innocence.

As a result of the precautionary ban Quim, who had played 13 times for his country, was not selected by coach Antonio Oliveira for the squad for the World Cup.
