Durban: A total of 208 samples taken from players after the first 52 World Cup matches in South Africa were negative, FIFA`s chief medical officer Jiri Dvorak said on Wednesday.

Two players per team are tested directly after each match and none has yet been found to have any trace of a banned substance.

The clean slate continues a drugs free trend at all World Cups since 1998, FIFA said.
