Nigerian-born Chioma Ubogagu who plays for Tottenham is serving a nine-month suspension for failing a doping test after medication for a skin condition contained a prohibited substance.

Ubogagu, who scored on her England debut in 2018, joined Women’s Super League team Tottenham last year. Earlier, she was provisionally suspended in January but details of the case and verdict were announced only on Thursday.

An English Football Association regulatory commission found there were no intentional doping rule breaches by Ubogagu to improve performances and that she was taking the medication for a recognized condition. Ubogagu will not be able to return to action until October this year.
