The Mexican National football team broke the internet last week just before their World cup arrival in Russia when news about them partying with 30 escorts made headlines.
Turns out several players were implicated in the news by Mexican media.
Mexican magazine TV Notas said the ‘send off’ party occurred when the footballers were given the night-off after Saturday 2nd June’s 1-0 home win against Scotland.
The magazine, referring to the Mexican squad by their nickname El Tri reported that the party lasted well over a day.
A spot check reveals that this was not the first time; the team was involved in such a scandal.

After it was discovered hookers had been invited into the team’s pre-cup base in Ecuador capital Quito, the player made headlines when he came out to publicly apologize.
“I’m here to face the music. I have committed misconduct.I am very sorry for what I did and I apologise to the team, my team-mates, the entire coaching staff and people of Mexico. I’m here and I assume responsibility.” He said
