FIFA lifts Bulgaria player's doping suspension

ZURICH (AP) - FIFA has lifted the suspension of a Bulgarian player, hours after announcing he tested positive for doping at a World Cup qualifying match.

FIFA says its disciplinary committee chairman, Claudio Sulser, ``revoked his decision ... following clarification by medical bodies.''

FIFA says ``it appears that there is no circumstantial evidence that anti-doping rules have been violated.''

Earlier Thursday, FIFA announced that a player tested positive for ``prohibited substances'' after Bulgaria's 2-1 win against Malta in Valletta on Sept. 10.

The player, identified by Bulgarian media as Ludogorets Razgrad defender Yordan Minev, faced an initial 30-day suspension from all soccer while FIFA prosecuted his case.
