Claudio Pizarro insists that he has been unfairly punished in the wake of his 18-month international ban.
The Chelsea striker was handed the suspension as a result of his alleged involvement in the organisation of a party while on duty for Peru in November.
Pizarro, along with PSV Eindhoven forward Jefferson Farfan, Santiago Acasiete of Spain's Almeria, and Andres Mendoza of Steaua Bucharest will now not be eligible for the national side until May 2009.
The Peruvian football federation believes that the player's actions contravened rules which stipulate the squad should refrain from any activities which break a "period of concentration."
However, their star striker insists that he was in bed, alone, at the time of the incident and has branded the decision as "abuse" and "rotten".
"I'm surprised by the sanction and I reject it. I'm innocent," Pizarro said in a telephone interview with Peru's Canal 4 news program on Sunday.
Despite suggestions from coach Jose del Solar that the quartet may not be considered even once their suspensions have expired, Pizarro insists that he has no intention of turning his back on his country.
"I've never thought about leaving my team," he said.
"It is one of my goals, one of my dreams. I want to play in the World Cup and I am going to fight to achieve that."
Meanwhile, the former Bayern Munich forward's lawyer has made it clear that they will appeal the sanction and insists that they are willing to take the matter to Peru's courts and, if necessary, Fifa in order to demonstrate his client's innocence.
