Édgar Esteban Dueñas Peñaflor, (born March 5, 1983 in Guadalajara, Jalisco) is a Mexican footballer who is currently a free agent, having last played for Chiapas.[1]


National team[edit]

During the 2011 CONCACAF Gold Cup, Dueñas, and four other members of the Mexico national team, tested positive for the banned substance of Clenbuterol and were withdrawn from the squad.[2] Later, all players were exonerated as FIFA determined that the accused had ingested the banned substance through contaminated meat that had been inadvertently 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Agency appealed to the Court of Arbitration for Sport to request a ban.[4] On 12 October 2011 the request was withdrawn when the full record was made available to WADA.[5]
