It was reported that the party had taken place at an upmarket neighbourhood in Mexico City called Las Lomas where they grooved till 4pm on Sunday.

The magazine quoted a source as saying: "They arrived at the house in Las Lomas around 10.30pm on Saturday and had a great time with music, drinks, games and women.

"They had the night off, without their wives and girlfriends."

The unidentified insider, asked why their partners had not been at the party, told TV Notas: “Because they wanted to be a bit naughty.

"Why else would they have needed 30 escorts!"

Jonathan dos Santos has apologised after becoming one of eight players dropped from Mexico’s Copa America squad in 2011 following his involvement in that year’s prostitution scandal.

After it was discovered hookers had been invited into the team’s pre-cup base in Ecuador capital Quito, he said: "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."

The former Barcelona midfielder added: "I have to apologise to my club, and to my family.

“I have a very clean record - nine years at the club and there has never been any problem with me."

The Mexican Football Federation made its first official comments and appeared to indicate no disciplinary action would be taken.

Secretary General Guillermo Cantun of the federation told reporters: “These are the risks freedom has and we’re not going to change that.

“A day off is a day off. They’re the risks you have with freedom.

“It’s not whether we like it or not. We’re just got to be clear that it’s a day off and they haven’t missed training or a team get-together.

“The issue of values is a separate matter. I’m not going to condemn the players.

“The issue of freedom is a complex one of course but it’s a personal, free decision as to how they spend their free time.”
