Zurich:

FIFA says it has banned Belgian player Sven Verdonck worldwide after he tested positive for an anabolic steroid.

FIFA extended the 23-year-old Verdonck's suspension globally through May 20, 2012, after he was first sanctioned by the Netherlands football federation.

Verdonck played for Dutch second-division club Fortuna Sittard in April last year when he tested positive for stanozolol.

The same drug was used by sprinter Ben Johnson at the 1988 Olympics.
