The Mexican Football Federation has issued one-year bans to a pair of international defenders after they were thrown out of last mont’s Confederations Cup in Germany for failing a dope test.

“The organisation decided to suspend Salvador Carmona and Aaron Galindo from all sporting activity controlled by the Mexican Football Federation for the period of one year, as of today,” general secretary Decio de Maria said on Monday.

The pair tested positive for a derivative of nandrolone, a banned anabolic steroid.

FIFA had ordered the Mexican federation to deliver a full report soon and impose an appropriate sanction.
