Mexico quintet test positive

The Mexican Football Federation has revealed that five players in the Concacaf Gold Cup squad have failed drugs tests.

Decio de Maria, general secretary of the federation, said the quintet had tested positive for the banned substance clenbuterol.

De Maria named the players as goalkeeper Guillermo Ochoa, defenders Francisco Rodriguez and Edgar Duenas and midfielders Antonio Naelson 'Sinha' and Christian Bermudez.

Ochoa and PSV Eindhoven defender Rodriguez both featured in Mexico's opening Gold Cup game, a 5-0 thrashing of El Salvador.

News of the failed tests has surfaced just hours ahead of their second group game against Cuba at the Bank of America Stadium in North Carolina.,19528,12010_6977233,00.html
