FRANKFURT, Germany -- The Colombian Football Federation says backup goalkeeper Yineth Varon had hormonal treatment that led to a failed drug test at the Women's World Cup and her suspension.

FIFA provisionally suspended Varon after she failed an out-of-competition doping control on Saturday in Leverkusen. Varon has requested a B sample test.

FIFA did not say what substance was involved and the Colombian federation also gave no details of the treatment.

The federation says Varon did not report the treatment. She was a late replacement for regular goalkeeper Paula Forero.
