Édgar Esteban Dueñas Peñaflor, (born March 5, 1983 in Guadalajara, Jalisco) is a Mexican footballer. He currently plays for Toluca.[1] He made it to a third cup final against Santos.


National team[edit]

During the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup, Dueñas, and four other members of the Mexican National Team, tested positive for the banned substance of Clenbuterol and were withdrawn from the team's tournament squad.[2] However, all players were exonerated as FIFA determined that the accused had accidentally ingested the banned substance through contaminated meat that had been served during a pre-tournament training camp.[3]

However, World Anti-Doping Agency appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport to request a ban.[4] But on 12 October 2011 WADA withdrew this request after the full file was available for them.[5]
