Carlos Vela suspended from Mexico team for 6 months

Arsenal and Mexico striker Carlos Vela has been suspended from playing for his national side for 6 months, after having an after-match party following their 1-0 friendly win over Colombia last week.

Vela’s team-mate Efrain Juarez also received the lengthy ban, while a handful of other Mexican players were slapped on the wrists with fines.

The news comes at a good time for Arsenal, who are currently missing several strikers in Robin van Persie, Theo Walcott and Nicklas Bendtner.

21-year-old Vela completed 71 minutes against Spurs this evening during the 4-1 rout.
