Arsenal's Carlos Vela and Celtic's Efrain Juarez have been banned from playing for Mexico for six months over an alleged party at the team hotel.

It is claimed that the pair threw the party after a 1-0 friendly win against Colombia in Monterrey on 8 September.

Manchester United's Javier Hernandez and Tottenham's Giovani Dos Santos were fined £2,517 over the incident.

Fulham's Carlos Salcido, West Ham's Pablo Barrera and seven other players have been issued with the same fine.

Captain Rafael Marquez, Guillermo Ochoa, Francisco Rodriguez, Andres Guardado, Gerardo Torrado, Enrique Esqueda and Hector Moreno were also punished.

Striker Vela and midfielder Juarez's suspension has been backdated, making them unavailable for selection until 8 March.

Mexico, who appointed Efrain Flores as their interim manager in July, are due to play Poland in a friendly on 12 October.
