Under-21 stars banned
Seth Johnson
Johnson: ticked off by Howard Wilkinson
Three England Under-21 players have received three month international suspensions for visiting a bar during the European Championships.

Derby midfielder Seth Johnson, Aston Villa midfielder Lee Hendrie and Blackburn striker Matt Jansen have been hit with the suspension for breaking a curfew in Slovakia.

The Football Association penalised the players and the ban will come into force from the start of next season.

The trio were discovered to have broken a curfew at the team hotel and drunk alcohol at a nearby bar on a non-match night between the under-21 side's second and third games of the tournament.

  FA statement

Howard Wilkinson, the FA's technical director who was in charge of the side, discovered the breach of discipline the following morning and action has now been taken against the trio.

The FA said in a statement: "As a consequence of a breach of discipline during the recent Uefa Under-21 Championships in Slovakia, the FA have suspended three players from international selection for a period of three months commencing at the start of next season.

"The players concerned are Lee Hendrie of Aston Villa, Matt Jansen of Blackburn Rovers and Seth Johnson of Derby County.

"All three excluded themselves from the team hotel in Slovakia and consumed alcohol on a non-match day during the tournament.

"This was contrary to team disciplinary instructions and was dealt with accordingly."
