Five Ecuador international footballers have been suspended indefinitely for "indiscipline" ahead of their final CONMEBOL World Cup qualifier.

Five Ecuador players have been suspended indefinitely for "indiscipline" after allegedly partying in Quito before their final World Cup qualifying match against Argentina, the Ecuadorian Football Federation (FEF) said on Friday.

Despite taking an early lead in the match on Tuesday, Ecuador failed to qualify for Russia 2018 after Lionel Messi dragged the Albiceleste to a 3-1 win with a stunning hat-trick.

Media in Ecuador names five players allegedly involved 

The players, who are accused of leaving the team camp on the outskirts of Quito last Friday night, were not named by the FEF, although they were identified by Ecuadorian media.

According to El Comercio, the suspended players are Robert Arboleda, Jefferson Orejuela, Gabriel Cortez, Enner Valencia and Joao Plata.

"FEF sends a very strong signal to future players"

"By taking this approach, the FEF sends a very strong signal to future players," the federation said in a statement.

Ecuador had previously lost 2-1 to Chile, hampering their chances of qualifying before the Argentina match, in which Arboleda, Orejuela and Valencia played.

Orejuela denies any involvement, telling El Telegrafo: "It's a lie".
