Mexico World Cup Squad Holds Farewell Party With 30 Prostitutes

It has been reported that members of Mexico's national soccer team held a farewell party with around 30 prostitutes before the team traveled to Europe before the World Cup.

According to gossip magazine TVNotas, nine members of the Mexican World Cup team had fun with dozens of bodyguards in a private arena in Mexico City last Saturday after the team's 1-0 victory over Scotland at the Estadio Aztec.

The magazine published grainy images of players who came to the party under the headline "The true farewell of the Tri!".

However, Mexican officials said the players involved will not be sanctioned because they attended the party in their free time.

Guillermo Cantú, secretary general of the Mexican Football Federation, said the players would not be punished because "they have not lost their training."

"A free day is a free day and those are the risks that one runs with freedom," Cantu said, as quoted.

Among the players present were goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa and Benfica forward Raúl Jiménez.

Los Angeles Galaxy brothers Jonathan and Giovani dos Santos also attended, along with defender Carlos Salcedo and midfielder Marco Fabian, who play for Eintracht Frankfurt in Germany.

The Mexico team is already in Copenhagen, where they prepare for a friendly against Denmark on Saturday before heading to Russia.

The controversy echoes similar scandals that have revolved around the team in recent years.

In September 2010, players from Mexico celebrated with women after a game in Monterrey. On that occasion, all the participants were fined, while defender Efraín Juárez and striker Carlos Vela were suspended from the national team for six months.

In June 2011, shortly before a trip to Argentina to participate in the Copa América, Mexican players hired sex workers in a hotel in Quito, Ecuador. They were fined and suspended from the national team for half a year.
