Zurich - FIFA has provisionally suspended a Zimbabwe player who tested positive for doping at a Soccer World Cup qualifying match. FIFA did not identify the player, who was suspended on Monday from all football for 30 days. The player failed a test after Zimbabwe's 4-2 loss to Egypt at Harare in June 9.
