Lengthy bans for Vela and Juarez

Mexico have suspended Carlos Vela and Efrain Juarez for six months after the duo breached rules on international duty.

The British-based pair, as well as Guillermo Ochoa, Maza Rodriguez, Carlos Salcido, Andres Guardado, Gerardo Torrado, Pablo Barrera, Giovani dos Santos, Chicharito Hernandez, Rafael Marquez, Enrique Esqueda and Hector Moreno, were also handed 50,000 pesos (£2,517) fines.

The punishments relate to an alleged party following a 1-0 friendly win over Colombia in Monterrey earlier this month, with Vela and Juarez - who play for Arsenal and Celtic respectively - having violated four rules from the federation's code of conduct.

National team director Nestor de la Torre said: "Carlos Vela and Efrain Juarez will be suspended for six months from the date of these events [September 8], for calls for the national team, because there were faults in four sections of the national team rules."
